|Abstract:||There is a widespread perception that hoons are a major danger on Australian roads. However, the statistics and the research paint a very different picture. While young people are disproportionately involved in motor vehicle accidents, very few serious crashes involve high performance vehicles. So why are hoons a source of popular concern? This paper looks at the perceptions of danger associated with hooning and other aspects of car culture, and also explores the purposes that these activities play in the lives of young men.|
