A call has gone out for Wollongong Police and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA), to crack-down on hoons and excessive motor vehicle noise in Wollongong CBD.

Member for Wollongong Paul Scully, says data has confirmed, that an enforcement operation has not taken place in the Wollongong CBD for over five years.

Mr Scully says this lack of action, is sending the wrong message, that owners and drivers of highly modified vehicles, can disturb the 'amenity' of locations with no fear of consequence.
