MELISSA Wilson is warning drivers to be careful after a rock was thrown at her car on Mandurah Road yesterday at 8.30am.

She was driving south on Mandurah Road, just before the train station.

“I didn’t see who threw it but there were a couple of kids in (John Tonkin College) uniforms walking from the area a few minutes after as I drove back past,” she said.

“(It was) extremely dangerous and scary.

“I hate to think what would have happened to my son if the rock had gone completely through the window.”

Waynes Windscreens manager Jason Segger said rocks thrown at cars happened “a fair bit”.

He said three or four times a month people would come in to get their windscreens fixed from rock damage.

“It happens a lot near the Coodanup overpass near the police station,” he said.

Mr Segger said beach carparks were also a hot spot for rock damage to windscreens.
