A man in his 40s has been charged with driving offences as hoons come to the attention of Timboon district police.
Timboon police Senior Constable Glenn McDuff said he wanted information from the public in relation to hoon driving in the Paaratte area, south of Timboon, and lower Heytesbury.
Roads impacted include the Timboon-Peterborough Road and Boundary Road.
Senior Constable McDuff said there were a large amount of tyre marks on the road surface.
"It's been happening over the past two or three weeks," he said.
"One Timboon man in his 40s has been charged with driving offences and we are seeking to identify the drivers of several other vehicles.
"Those vehicles include a red Holden sedan, a silver Holden sedan and a white Holden stationwagon.
"Warrnambool police highway patrol unit has been alerted and officers will perform random patrols in the district in the hunt for speeders, hoon drivers and unroadworthy vehicles."
Senior Constable McDuff said the patrols were part of Operation Achilles.
"That operation is an integrated statewide response to high risk driving," he said.
"The primary focus is to reduce and disrupt high-risk driving incidents across the state through a consistent and coordinated police response.
"Prevention activities are developed to reduce the attractiveness to engage in HRD events," he said.
Anyone with information is requested to contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
