Police call for public assistance against hoons

EUROA police are taking a zero tolerance approach to ‘hoon’ driving after a number of incidents both locally and on the Hume Freeway.

Police are investigating an incident involving a 19 year old Euroa man who recently lost control of his Ford Falcon on Hay Street (Euroa).

The vehicle left the road colliding with a large concrete sewer cap, causing significant damage to the vehicle.

Police allege that the male was engaging in hoon activity on the street moments before the accident.

First Constable Dean Arrowsmith said in the wake of the Labor Day long weekend, and despite a strongly publicised request for people to take care on the roads, police are still disappointed with the amount of people driving dangerously and at excessive speeds on the Hume Freeway.

He said a large amount of motorists were intercepted by police travelling at high speeds.
