Police are being urged to get tough on youths seen launching missiles from flyovers after a spate of incidents on roads across Courier Country.
Since then more drivers have come forward to report similar experiences, with fears growing that someone could soon be killed unless the reckless behaviour is stopped.
Glenrothes man Mike Thornton was forced to call 999 after his car was struck, by what he described as, a large mud ball thrown by youths from flyover over the A92 close to Lochgelly at 6.30pm on Thursday.
He said: “As we went under the bridge there was a loud bang from what turned out to be a large ball of mud that had struck the windscreen.
“It was definitely thrown from above leaving me completely shaken up.
“This behaviour is so dangerous and will result in tragedy if isn’t taken seriously.”
Another motorist, who asked not be be named, said he witnessed youths launching stones from a pedestrian bridge over the A92 close to Redhouse roundabout near Thornton.
He said: “As I approached the footbridge I spotted about six youths and it was clear from the debris on the road that items had been aimed at other motorists.
“Luckily there wasn’t other vehicles close to me and I swerved out of the way.
Meanwhile, Fife mum Katie Penman also had a similar lucky escape.
She said: “This happened to me two weeks ago. I had to slam my brakes to avoid getting hit by whatever it was they were throwing off the flyover.
“There was a group of five or six young kids on the bridge above.
“It was a horrible experience of seeing it coming but nowhere to go.
“I had my three-year-old in car with me at the time.”
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said officers had investigated the incident involving Mr Thornton and found that it was not being treated as a criminal act as no damage had occurred.
But police would not comment on anecdotal reports of incidents of this nature and urged anyone who has been a victim to formally report it by calling Police Scotland on 101.
Mr Thornton said he was disappointed by police response and and has now called for more to be done to kerb the reckless behaviour.
“It’s going to take someone being injured or even killed for this to be taken seriously,” he said.
“I dread to think what might happen if this is stopped once and for all.”
