Two Christchurch drivers have been punched in the face in two road rage disputes in as many days.

Police were called to Goldpine, a timber firm on Springs Rd, Hornby about 7am on Tuesday. 

An altercation between the two men came after one "braked suddenly" on his commute to work.

The driver of the car behind became verbally aggressive, hurled abuse and followed him.

The irate driver punched the man in the face outside his workplace, police said.

He suffered a bruised face. 

On Monday, police received a report of an abusive driver on Manchester St about 3.40pm.

A person ran over to a vehicle and swore at another motorist, punching him in the face before driving off again, a police spokeswoman said.

The victim suffered a minor mouth injury.
