What is hoon driving?

According to WA Police, a hoon driver is anyone who drives at very high speed or in a manner that is considered highly dangerous or antisocial.
Examples include:

  • intentionally causing tyres to lose traction
  • causing a vehicle to make excessive noise or smoke
  • exceeding the speed limit by 45 km/h or more (e.g. travelling at more than 155 km/h in a 110 km/h zone )
  • engaging in a race or speed trial on a public road or in a public space

Vehicles that are being driven in a reckless or dangerous manner, such as doing burnouts or racing another vehicle, can be impounded under the Road Traffic Act 1974.
The WA Police Force also has the power to impound the vehicles of drivers who exceed the speed limit by 45 km/h or more.

Those who have their vehicles impounded by police are responsible for all costs including towing and storage.

What is Road Rage

Road rage is an offence where sudden and violent anger, often innocently motivated by the actions of another road user, may result in the offender driving in such a manner that is dangerous to other road users. It may result in the offender assaulting and/or damaging the property of the victim, their passengers, or other road users.
The offender may be suffering from Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED) which is an impulse-control disorder that is characterized by sudden, unwarranted episodes of anger. This disorder causes people to act in a hostile manner or impulsively participate in recurrent aggressive outbursts.
