A NEAR miss involving a speeding hoon driver has an Albury man fed up.
The dangerous behaviour around Wood Street has frustrated resident Dan - who asked for his last name to be withheld for safety reasons - after a recent near miss outside his family home.
His vehicle was nearly struck by the speeding driver last week, coming within millimetres of his utility.
"I'm fed up," he said.
"I've got two young kids and their rooms back onto the street.
"I tell you what, it's not going to be long before that car comes through the fence.
"(Last) Saturday night was a clear indication - he lost control of his car and nearly hit my ute, parked on the nature strip.
"It would have been within millimetres."

The father-of-two spoke out after the launch of the Stop It or Cop It campaign by Albury Council and police, which aimed to identify the city's worst streets for speeding.
Dan said hoon behaviour in his area had been getting worse.
"It's been going on for about six months," he said.
"It's a built up area.
"The school is right across the road.
"Who knows, a young school kid could get hit.
"I've spoken to the city council about making it a school zone, to put in speed humps or something like that.
"It needs some consideration."
Thick tyre marks can be seen in the street, which is a 50km/h zone.
Dan said the behaviour was tarnishing the area.
"It's happening at least once or twice a week," he said.
"It's the same person.
"It's getting worse.
"That's why I'm complaining about it."
The Stop It or Cop It initiative has run for several years.
At the launch of this year's campaign earlier this month, Sergeant Steve Schausinger said police would target the five worst streets for speeding.
"In a motor vehicle crash, travelling at only a small amount over the speed limit can sometimes make the difference between life and death," he said.
"But if community members can help us to identify the hot spots for speeding we can concentrate on those areas and make it clear to speeding drivers that their dangerous behaviour won't be tolerated."
About 40 per cent of fatalities involve speed.
Dan said he had reported one driver to police, but had been unable to see the vehicle's number plates.
"To the low life scum that are doing this, grow up and understand this is not normal behaviour," he said.
"(I'm) very annoyed and particularly disappointed."
