South Coast police are drawing a line on burnouts and warn offenders can lose their vehicles and suffer heavy fines.
Police have launched Operation Street Sweeper to target such behaviour.
South Coast Highway Patrol Supervisor, Sergeant Angus Duncombe says a recent case shows how seriously the highway patrol and the courts view such activity.
He said a South Coast provisional licence holder was recently fined a total of $1000 and disqualified from holding a licence for twelve months.
"In addition, he was ordered to forfeit his vehicle to the crown," Sergeant Duncombe said.
Police said witness statements and physical evidence helped investigators secure convictions and it was important for residents to share information.
"Adverse driver behaviour is being targeted," Sergeant Duncombe said.

"In conjunction with assistance from the community, Police have further charges before the court in relation to incidents of unacceptable driving on the local road network."
Sergeant Duncombe said strong action by the courts, including forfeiture of vehicles, "sent a clear message".
He warned drivers of the potential penalties and asked them to think of others.
"Think of the consequences that these actions may impose on the safety of all road users," Sergeant Duncombe said.
"I continue to urge the community to report to the Highway Patrol driving behaviour such as aggravated burnouts, burnouts or drifting.
"All assistance such as CCTV, video footage or images on social media can and will be used as part of the evidence to support charges before the court."
Sergeant Duncombe said the patrol knew the identity of "persons involved in this type of driving behaviour" and warned they were being monitored.
"Those persons and their vehicles will be subject to regular Police intercepts, and appropriate action if deemed necessary," he said.
"To report adverse driving behaviour, the Highway Patrol can be contacted on 4472 0099."
