Brisbane’s creative way to stop hoons in their tracks

Brisbane City Council will implement more ‘burnout-resistant’ bitumen after a successful first trial.

The bitumen contains sharp rocks that won’t affect regular drivers, but will tear up hoons’ tyres when they attempt skids and burnouts.

The council trialled the solution in Ipswich in May this year, and complaints in the hotspot have since dropped to zero.

Brisbane Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner says the bitumen is designed to keep hoons safe just as much as it’s designed to make residents happy.

“People have lost their lives doing this sort of thing.

“I’d prefer to see someone’s tyres ripped up than someone crashing and dying.”
