A dashboard camera has captured a near-miss in the Adelaide Hills, sparking calls for a tougher police presence in the area.

Mother of two Kimberley Wise lives on Bridgewater to Carey Gully Road at Mount George in the Adelaide Hills, which is fast becoming a speedway.

“We’re sort of on the verge of letting the police know that perhaps they should come out here and look it over,” Ms Wise told 9NEWS.

After footage was aired on 9NEWS last night, detectives have launched an investigation into a suspected drag race on West Terrace.

“Well it just reaffirms to us some of the things that people do on our roads really do create an unacceptable risk, those sorts of overtaking maneuvers are completely unacceptable,” Chief Superintendent Michael Cornish said.

“Those types of incidents often do lead to tragic consequences.”

Police are using vision of dangerous driving caught on dash cameras and mobile phones to track down hoon drivers, who may have previously got away with it.

They’ve released images of a man they’d like to speak with.
