First Aussie hoon to lose his car for life
For Terrance Lord, a resident of Drummond, the law was taken to its extreme when he was caught driving on a suspended license. The punishment: his 1980 Toyota Corona is now forever in the hands of the local police.
The only time a vehicle can be impounded permanently is when the driver is cited three times under the anti-hoon law, so we assume that this wasn't Lord's first run in with the local authorities.
Harsh? Maybe, but we'll be interested to see if there is any reduction in these particular offenses over the next few years.
