Getting your car back after being impounded for traffic offenses
The so called "hoon laws" allow the police to impound a vehicle that a driver has been driving while they perform the offence. This can include reckless driving including driving as speeds over 155km/hr., driving 45km/hr. over the posted speed limit and/or causing unnecessary smoke and noise with the car. Unfortunately, the hoon laws allow the police to confiscate the car that was being driven, even if the driver doesn't own it, causing great distress and inconvenience for people who have lent out their car.
