There are calls for tighter parking restrictions to stop car hoons congregating on Wharf Road, Newcastle East.
Police are suggesting locking up the Foreshore to stop car enthusiasts from causing trouble.
Around 140 people gather on Thursday nights, while around 100 gather on Kooragang Island.
Police say they are powerless to act on Kooragang because the many of the roads are privately owned.
However, they want Newcastle Council to make Wharf Road between Watt Street and Nobbys Road a no-stopping zone from at least 9pm and possibly as early as 7 at night.
