Anti-Hoon Bars Take the fun out of burnouts and hoon behaviour

Is hoon-driving and burnouts a safety concern in your streets? Are residents being kept awake at night from noisy cars and motorbikes, and associated bad behaviour? OmniGrip Direct’s Anti-Hoon Bars can reduce the attractiveness of your roads to hoon drivers.

 

OmniGrip Direct’s Anti-Hoon Bars are an innovative road surface that takes the fun out of burnouts.  It disrupts the spinning and sliding of tyres on the surface of the road by enabling the spinning tyre to grip as it crosses OmniGrip Direct’s high-friction surface treatment.

When local governments have known hoon sites, the quick and easy application of hoon bars will quickly discourage burnout behaviour once installed.

OmniGrip Direct’s Anti-Hoon Bars don’t damage tyres when a vehicle is operated under normal operating conditions, i.e., when the road is used in accordance with the road rules.

Anti-Hoon Bars are 500mm wide and spaced at 1200mm, reducing wheel spin when tyres hit the Anti-Hoon Bars.

case study

OmniGrip Direct Anti-Hoon Bars were installed at the intersection of Ribblesdale Court and Gordons Crossing Road West for Moreton Bay Regional Council on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

Council engineers identified this intersection specifically due to after-hours hoon behaviour. The loud noise and activity disturbed local residents.

Since the introduction of the OmniGrip Direct Anti-Hoon Bars at this intersection, hooning behaviour has dramatically reduced.

In a newsletter to residents, Cr Cath Tonks, Councillor for Division 9 Moreton Bay Regional Council wrote; “Council will continue to monitor the effectiveness of the trial pavement treatment to reduce/deter hooning in this area, by all accounts it has seen a dramatic reduction.”

 

No matter whether you’re in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart or Adelaide, hoon drivers are the same and OmniGrip Direct’s Hoon Bars are a preventative measure that reduces anti-social behaviour and risk.
