Residents and business owners in Leschenault are pleading for answers following an alarming incident in Cathedral Avenue on Sunday afternoon.

A vehicle was allegedly heard doing burnouts along the road at approximately 1.30pm on October 4.

The vehicle then ploughed through 10 metres of fencing and wiring along one property, before fleeing the scene.

Symone Ferriday and Rachel Mead, who train and raise horses in the paddock where the incident occurred, took to social media to express their concerns.

Ms Ferriday is urging local tenants and property owners to exercise caution and report any suspicious behaviour to Australind Police.

"It's frustrating and disappointing...the area is now being destroyed by meatheads who don't care," she said.

In addition, Ms Ferriday is pleading with the Shire of Harvey, and all other relevant parties, to lower the speed limit along Cathedral Ave.

"I have been encouraged to attend the next local council meeting, because one of the agenda items talks about lowering the speed limit along there," she said.

"Hopefully, it might encourage them to lower the speed limit and do a little bit more in the area."

Australind Police Officer-in-Charge Senior Sergeant Mark Smith said that inappropriate driver behaviour was "always unacceptable".

"It is a serious offence to leave the scene of a crash that you have caused," he added.
