Give hoons a rev up, dob them in

By MIKE SCOTT ? WANT to reclaim the streets from hoons Rock- hampton? Then dob them in.

The advice from the city council and police is: "Tell us, we'll stop them.'' Rockonia Road resident Marene McDonald is one of those who are scared and sick of racers.

Day and night cars race up and down the 60kmh street with disregard to children and older resi- dents in the area.

"They go straight through at 100kmh at least, it's absolutely ridiculous. Why do they have to do it?'' she said.

"Something has to be done before someone is injured, or worse.''

City Councillor Rod Green said the Rockonia Road example was one of several in Rockhampton.

The best way to beat them was to report them to the police, Cr Green said.

The council and police could work together to target problems areas and provide an enforcing presence on the streets, he said.
