A Goonellabah driver is nearly $600 poorer after police attending a nearby incident spotted him doing a burnout and issued him with an on-the-spot fine.
Richmond LAC police were attending to a matter at Brooks Place on Saturday night when they heard the sound of a car revving excessively and wheels spinning.
Looking over the fence they saw a blue Ford Falcon doing a burnout on Oliver Avenue.
Officers took down the vehicle’s registration and after dealing with the matter at hand they went to the adjoining property where they spoke to a 22-year-old man who admitted to doing the burnout.
The driver was issued with an infringement notice for the burnout, which carries a fine of $596.
