ONE driver clearly has an issue with mobile speed cameras.

This morning a driver of a silver Subaru Forrester took matters into his own hands when he vented his anger at the vehicle not once but twice.

At around 8.30am the driver pulled up behind the black Ford Territory and verballed the civilian seated inside the vehicle.

Just before midday the same driver took matters even further.

This time the mobile speed camera was parked on the western side of the Pacific Hwy near Corindi.

The Subaru Forrester was traveling south but did a U-turn after passing the speed camera and quickly pulled up behind the parked vehicle.

The driver threw a rock at the speed camera vehicle and stole a "your speed has been checked" sign before speeding off.

The rock caused minor damage to the vehicle and the frightened driver called police for assistance.

Police are currently following up who the angry driver of the vehicle was.
