POLICE issued 40 motorist infringements while monitoring a notorious hooning hotspot over the past weekend.

Jimboomba police Senior Sergeant Peter Waugh said high visibility patrols were conducted at Tamborine on June 2 to 3 with most traffic offenders caught at Clutha Creek, near Albert River Place and Greenward Road on Waterford Tamborine Road.

“We issued infringement notices for speeding, defective vehicles, licence offences and ten notices to appear in court for drink and drug driving,” he said.

“We will continue to target the Clutha Creek site and there have been seven other speed camera sites approved recently.”

Senior Sergeant Waugh said the targeted police operations were set up to stop hoons and promote responsible driving practices.

This comes after the Jimboomba Times reported that residents wanted 24-hour surveillance of the road to prevent hoons from continuing to wreak havoc in the area.

The Logan Country Safe City group released drone images of the Clutha Creek section of Waterford Tamborine Road this week.

Chairman Dave Kenny said the group was pushing for existing traffic islands (pictured in purple) to be replaced with concrete traffic islands.

Mr Kenny also proposed for yellow lines (pictured) to be painted on both sides of Waterford Tamborine from 25 metres south of the Albert River Bridge, 25 metres north of Clutha Creek Road and a further 25 metres toward Tamborine.
