Something that is seemingly on the rise now is auto insurance scams, both in other vehicles and on foot. What they look like is something like this: an obvious attempt at creating an accident that is at no fault of the driver.
Here is an even more pathetic attempt.
You’ll notice that in these cases, dash cams likely saved the drivers from lawsuits. The problem seems to be more prevalent in other parts, but the U.S. is no exception to auto insurance fraud. This couple is obviously a bit upset when the driver points out that he has a dash cam.
Those idiots got off easy though, here’s a guy who probably regrets acting like a jackass.
Turns out after our recorder put this up on YouTube, the scam artist started getting death threats.
So depending on where you live, it may be worth your while to invest in a dash cam.
It could save you some money down the road. Then again, there are alternative means of dealing with these kinds of people.
