Police have impounded five high performance Nissan Skyline’s after a YouTube video was shot of six cars racing through Adelaide’s Heysen Tunnel in Southern Australia. The sixth car involved was a light-coloured Skyline, and is still at large, but police are confident they will find the driver.
The five men arrested, aged 21 to 34 face a range of driving offences in releation to the race in May after the cars reached speed of 89 mph in a 55 mph zone. Police used the YouTube video along with closed circuit cameras from the area to identify the cars. Linda Fellows, officer in charge of traffic support, said the cars will be impounded for 28 days.
“Police will take every opportunity to investigate dangerous driving behaviour and take people off the roads if they can’t obey the rules and drive responsibly,” Superintendent Fellows explained. ”We have a rising road toll and it’s actions like this that can result in further carnage and road trauma. Police will not tolerate the public being put at risk by the reckless and irresponsible actions of a few.”
