You may have recently heard the term “Crash for cash” floating around. So what exactly is it?
Crash for Cash is when someone will deliberately smash his or her vehicle into another with the intention of claiming on the other persons insurance. They usually target new drivers as the premium for younger drivers costs more than an experienced driver.
There are three main types of “Crash for cash” tactics:
One is where two people will purposely crash into each other and claim on each other’s insurance. This is usually performed by friends or family and obviously the crash will be planed before hand.
“Crash for cashers’ also endanger the public, pill they do this by driving on a road at reasonable speed when all of a sudden they will sharply break without warning making the vehicle behind them hit their car, find allowing them to claim on the insurance of the person who was allegedly ‘at fault.’
