PC Lee Rowson, from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “It’s very lucky that there was not a serious collision resulting from this reckless behaviour.
“We are carrying out extensive enquiries to trace the offender(s) and I am urging the public to get in touch if they saw what happened or have information which might help.
“If you were driving along the A414 around the time of the incidents and you have a dash cam, please check it and get in touch if you spot anything that seems suspicious. Even the tiniest piece of information could prove to be vital in catching those responsible and stopping them from doing this again.
“Witnesses and those with information should call the non-emergency number 101 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting the relevant crime reference number.”
