This teenage hoon won't see his car again for a while

A TEENAGER had his car impounded by police after he was caught doing a burnout and then fishtailing up the street near at a busy roundabout.

The 18-year-old from Urangan did a burnout as he exited the roundabout at Torquay Rd and Taylor St about 2.20pm on Wednesday.

He was then seen fishtailing with smoke. 

He was given two fines - $390 for wilfully making unnecessary noise and smoke and another fine for not displaying his P plates.

The vehicle has been impounded for 90 days.

Hervey Bay Police Senior Constable Tony Watherston said it was a warning to other drivers.

"If you drive in this manner and hoon you will have your car impounded," Snr Cons Watherston said.
