What is Hooning?

“Hooning”, “To Hoon” is a word that i have seen and heard quite a lot of recently.

I had to find out the exact meaning of this word and whereas would I turn to but Google.

Here is an excerpt from Jalopnik:

References say that Hoon stood for “man living off immoral earnings (i.e. a pimp)” at the turn of the 20th century. The term has evolved to encompass drivers of either sex “who drives any vehicle dangerously and/or fast.” The term hoon is typically only used in Australia or New Zealand, but we’re doing our damnedest to bring it front and center into the vocab of American gearheads everwhere.

also a shirt had the best definition by far.
