A hoon whose driving interrupted Kingaroy’s Remembrance Day commemoration service on Thursday has lost his car for 90 days.

Office-in-charge of Kingaroy Police, Senior Sergeant Dave Tierney, said police were disappointed to be at the service in Memorial Park and observe a gold-coloured Holden utility commit a hooning offence on Haly Street, disturbing the service that was happening.

“The vehicle was seen to drive past the event on a number of occasions, accelerating heavily whilst cornering on the wet roads and making excessive and unnecessary noise in doing so,” Snr Sgt Tierney said.

“The vehicle was intercepted after being seen turning from Haly Street into William Street and losing traction as it went around the corner.”

Snr Sgt Tierney said the driver, a 22-year-old Kingaroy man, was issued infringements notices for exceeding the speed limit ($275 fine and three points) and wilfully driving a vehicle in a manner to make unnecessary noise or smoke ($441 fine and two points). The vehicle was also immobilised for 90 days.

“Whilst this type of behaviour will not be tolerated, it certainly is disappointing to see such a service as Remembrance Day interrupted and disturbed by such thoughtless and dangerous behaviour,” Snr Sgt Tierney said.
