Hoon watch

Hoon watch. The hoon driving Minister for Road Safety Tom Koutsantonis bid a speedy farewell to South Australia's Road Safety Ministry yesterday. The morning words of Premier Mike Rann giving him one last chance after his appallling driving record was exposed (see the Owl yesterday) had changed to a resignation statement by the afternoon. This morning it is Queensland's turnto have some hoon driving outrage with The Courier Mail reporting that reckless drivers are using the M1 as a race track and shocked police have recorded some of the highest-ever speeds in the state on the eight-lane motorway. Still, things have not yet got to the stage they reached in Phoenix Arizona at the weekend when a speed camera operator was shot dead by a passing motorist apparently angered by not being able to drive as he wanted.
