9 worst hoon hotspots on the Northern Rivers
THEY'RE heaven for hoons but these speedster stretches on the Northern Rivers have attracted the ire of our readers over the years.
These are the worst hoon hangouts, which innocent cyclists, pedestrians and motorists fear the most:
The favoured circuit for North Lismore hoons includes laps of Richmond River High School, Bridge Street and Alexandra Parade.
North Creek Road and Southern Cross Industrial Estate in Ballina. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night cars are heard "laying rubber" along the streets of Southern Cross Industrial Estate and North Creek Road.
After today's story on the two unregistered and unlicensed hoons who wrote off their cars on Stony Chute Road within four days of each other, readers are outraged - something has to be done about this notorious strip.
P-platers have got themselves in hot water while speeding and doing burn-outs on Caniaba Road just outside of Lismore. In 2014, three young male drivers were involved in a three-car collision. Police allege that at least one vehicle was doing burnouts and the result was a motor vehicle collision involving three vehicles.
Police have also named the following as notorious speeding hotspots:
The Pacific Hwy
The Bruxner Hwy
Coolamon Scenic Drive
