Speeding drivers

Find out how to report repeat speeding drivers and how we can help.

Speeding vehicles

We manage requests for measures to address speeding on local roads. Most issues arise when locals drive carelessly because they're familiar with local roads.

When speeding issues are identified, we don't immediately take action on physical traffic treatment. We start by following the most appropriate of these principles:

  • educate drivers by improving signs and running the ‘Not So Fast’ program, which involves putting a flashing electronic speed board in your street for two weeks
  • police enforcement
  • encourage sustainable and low-impact travel
  • engineering treatments that lower vehicle speeds without reducing walking, cycling or public transport amenity

‘Hoon’ driver behaviour

Anti-hoon laws aim to make roads safer and reduce road trauma. They give police the power to impound, immobilise or permanently confiscate vehicles driven dangerously. Read more about these laws on the Victoria Police website.

Victoria Police investigates and prosecutes hoon drivers. If you have concerns about hoon drivers in your area, call 1800 333 000 or visit the Victoria Police Anti-hoon laws webpage.

To report volume or speeding concerns in your street, please contact Customer Service by calling 03 8470 8888 or emailing mailbox@darebin.vic.gov.au.
