    whilst i don’t condone street racing/burnouts/hooningg, i love how the standard response is to shut places down. Soon there will be nowhere left for anyone to go and the locals will be screaming they are going out of business.

    Hows about instead of shutting places down you actually do something and give these people somewhere to go.

    Close the hoon places. Hoons skid and race in your street near your belongings and family!
