A TRUCKIE who was seen driving erratically with an alleged 'bong' and marijuana found inside the semi-trailer's cabin will face court.

The 48-year-old Camden truck driver was allegedly travelling at speeds of around 40km/h in a 110km/h zone while travelling north on the Pacific Hwy at Urunga on Friday.

Motorists called Triple 000 and followed the truck with their hazard lights on as the vehicle could be seen swerving across both lanes and onto the shoulder.
