THREE men have been charged with hooning offences overnight and had their vehicles impounded for three months.

Gladstone police impounded a Nissan Skyline sedan at 8.50pm on Wednesday, charging the 26-year-old male driver with driving without due care and attention, and wilfully making unnecessary smoke and noise.

The offence occurred on Dawson Rd, Gladstone.

At 9pm on Wednesday, two vehicles were impounded - a Toyota Hilux ute and a Holden Commodore ute.

A 22-year-old man and an 18-year-old man were charged with making unnecessary smoke and noise.

All three will appear in court at a later date.

They tried to enter through the front door, but were unsuccessful.

Nothing was taken from the service station, but the front door was damaged.
