Crash for cash

Not only is it worth having a dash cam, in my case front and back facing, but being vigilant is very useful with more and more people trying this.

Last year I remember cruising down the A38 when it was quiet and 3 Asian guys in a new Toyota Avensis (probably rented) very steadily overtook before beginning to move back to the inside lane quite close to me. I braked a little to give more distance and was poised and ready for any sudden braking. Nothing happened but being alert to it whenever possible helps.

The case in the news story is on the Channel 5 programme and worth a watch Thumbs Up - Starts at 19 minutes in

Happened to one of my sons workmates on the M6, luckily he stopped in time but pulled off the motorway and went straight to a police station. He told them it was a woman driver etc and showed them the footage from his dashcam. After tracing the car (which turned out to be a lease car leased to a man) the police charged both the woman driver and the guy who leased it!

Saw that program.
Particularly enjoyed the bits where the guy jumped on the bonnet and the chinese couple shoving the moped under the truck wheels.
Dash cams should be mandatory.

Maybe I'm missing something but surely there's only so many times you can make your name known to the insurance before they catch on?
