A 59-year-old man has been charged after conducting a burnout which caused so much smoke it blocked the vision of fellow motorists on the weekend.
Police said just before 5.30pm on Sunday officers were patrolling Union Road, Lavington, when they noticed a parked Chrysler 300 sedan.
Officers allege the car suddenly accelerated harshly causing the rear wheels to lose traction and spin.
