Hoon driving is nothing new in Cessnock just sit outside for 30 minutes and you are almost gaurtneed to here someone burning rubber in cessnock.

At 2pm on Wednesday afternoon a 20 year old man was observed by police doing a burnout from the traffic lights at hall street and than into a fishtale up hall street

The offending driver was issued a $686 traffic infringement and $286 fine for displaying his P plates and as well a loss of 5 demerit points.

Unfortunately this young man keeps his licence but has been left with 2 demerit points for the remaining time on his P’s, let’s hope this is enough to change this young man’s driving habbits.
