Hoon gets just desserts

By Holly Tregenza

A BLUE Mitsubishi that was impounded after a man was caught doing more than 100km/h in the 40km/h zone on Allan St has found a new home at Kyabram P-12 College. 

Students in the school's auto mechanic class received the car from the Kyabram police, who said they were able to make the donation after the man who was driving the vehicle at the time it was impounded told them it was not his own. 

"The male driver told police that it was not his car and he didn't know where it had come from," Constable Mitchell Bull said. 

Automotive teach Dale Roberts said it was a great opportunity for his students to practise some hands-on learning. 

"We're grateful for the opportunity to give our students this experience," he said. 

"There is only so much you can learn from textbooks, it is great that they are getting to test their skills hands-on.

"It will help make sure our students are ready for the workforce."

Principal Paul Tozer said the school was appreciative of the resource, and thanked Salters Panel Works for transporting the car to the school. 

"The more authentic the learning experience the better — this car has come straight off the road," Mr Tozer said.
