HOONS have made a Tweed road their private racetrack and businesses are worried someone will get hurt.

Enterprise Ave in Tweed Heads South's industrial area is covered with tyre marks left by drivers doing burnouts and other dangerous manoeuvres in the dead-end street.

Tyre marks stretched past businesses like Nr Signs and Organic Rosehip Skincare who were not happy with the situation.

Tony Worrad of Nr Signs said vehicles used the street as a personal test track and was worried there would be consequences.

"It really wouldn't take much to lose control," he said

Mr Worrad said the police had been called before, but hoons were still coming back.

"They really need to do something about it," he said.

Alice O'Donnell of Organic Rosehip Skincare had witnessed vehicles deliberately losing control on the street during the day and agreed it needed to be stopped.

"They fly down this street," she said.

"We really don't like parking our cars out there (the street) because we're afraid they'll hit them.

It happens during the day and night."

The small business owner wanted to see a stop to the risky behaviour.

"We've had the police down here, but it keeps happening," she said.

Tweed Police Duty officer Inspector Jim Cain said that police would be on the look out for traffic offenders in the area.

"If it's been reported and there's complaints the traffic police look into it," he said.

"Anyone who notices the vehicles should take their rego number and call police."

If you have further information contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
