Hoon driving is an Australian term used to describe a list of offences that involve reckless driving behaviour that puts the public at risk and is maintained under a 3 strike policy
First strike is 3 month impoundment and a heavy fine
Second is loss of licence for 3 to 12 months in accordance to what the judge rules and impoundment of your car for a minimum of 3 months
Third strike is permanent loss of vehicle to be either sold or crushed and loss of licence for determined time and heavy fines

Penalties for hoon driving offences include the vehicle being impounded, immobilised or forfeited and crushed whilst the offending driver is watching regardless of if they are the owner of the vehicle or not

Ie if you loan a friend your vehicle and he is caught hooning in it ,it can be at the risk of your vehicle
