Hoon Resource

For journalists after my work on hoons (because of this event), please send me an email to gfuller (at) uws (dot) edu (dot) au and I will send you a PDF of my book chapter on hoons and moral panics.

Or you can buy the book. Link to page on publisher’s website and media kit.

My basic point is that the ‘hoon’ problem needs to be properly defined, and not simply in terms of scale (‘this is how big the problem is’), but qualitatively. The road safety issues (ie different types of street racing, capacity to participate in normal traffic, etc), public space issues (ie enthusiasts cruising beach, cafe or night time ‘strips’), and moral issues are all dimensions of the problem. They need to be separated for the purposes of governance.
