hoons DonutA photo on the Kapiti Coast Facebook page showing the damage done to Te Atiawa park in Paraparaumu by motorised ‘donut’ makers.  This isn’t far south of the Waikanae River.

Before we moved to Waikanae in 2006 we had a boy racer household behind us in Wellington, and apart from the awful noises, one of them loved making rubber tyre marks on the road. After a while of putting up with this we got a security camera which proved its worth when he decided to make a donut as above on a neighbour’s lawn.  We gave the recording to the police who prosecuted him.
