motorcycle emptiness

Mr A.P. O’GORMAN: […] The licensing centre in Joondalup uses Queensbury Road as a test centre for motorcars. The motorcycle training schools also use that road. I get complaints on a weekly basis from the residents in that area, asking can I please do something about this. They start at 6.30 in the morning, and they are still going at 8.30 at night during the summer. Elderly people, and people who have retired, are living on those streets. They went there to live because they want to have a quiet life. But all they can hear up and down the street is the vroom, vroom of these people who are training.

Mr R.F. Johnson: What was that? Vroom, vroom? How does that go?

Mr A.P. O’GORMAN: The minister might think it is funny. I will put these motorbikes outside the minister’s house for a few days at 6.30 in the morning and see how funny he thinks it is then!

Mr R.F. Johnson: I get hooning outside my house, don’t you worry!
