Locals fed up with hoons causing carnage on Gold Coast streets

Residents in Varsity Lakes are furious and fed up with hoons continuing to cause carnage in the area.

An angry local has taken to a community Facebook page to vent her frustration over youngsters speeding through the street and crashing through fences.

The latest incident happened this week and saw a car crash through a fence and end up in a backyard on Cumberland Drive and Silvabank Drive.


The resident who published the Facebook post says police, paramedics and fire fighters attended the scene this time.

She also said she’s tried to bring the issue up with Council before.

“A few years back I complained to council about this corner and was told there was no issue, well I think council is very wrong.

“Time for action Gold Coast city council before my children and the ones that catch their school bus here everyday are killed?,” the post read.

It’s believed the driver ended up in hospital with serious spine injuries.

Councillor Hermann Vorster said in a Facebook post says that he’s spoken to concerned residents, and that this incident must not be tolerated.

“Hoons put lives at risk — they can kill”

“We can’t outlaw stupidity. But we owe it to our family and neighbours to do whatever we can!” the post reads.
