Senior hoons fined in Seymour

Police were left shaking their heads after a driver was seen causing a large ‘burn out’ plume of smoke just metres away from a random breath testing site in Seymour on Saturday night.

They were even more surprised to find two men – aged 55 and 85 – inside the offending vehicle.

Seymour Highway Patrol officers were setting up a drug and alcohol testing site on Anzac Avenue when the vehicle came to their attention at around 5.30pm.

“Officers heard a loud engine revving and saw a large amount of blue smoke coming from a Ford Ute,” Victoria Police said in a statement.

“The driver of the vehicle, a 55-year-old Broadford man and his 85-year-old passenger were intercepted and spoken to by police.

“The driver made admission to the poor driving behaviour and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $906.”

He is expected to be charged on summons with driving offences.
