The Association for Safe International Road Travel reports that nearly 1.3 million people die in road accidents each year, which means that 3,287 people perish in crashes daily. That is a harrowing statistic and it’s small wonder that countries all over the world work to improve road safety. However, some people see accidents on road as an opportunity to profit.
Back in July of last year, a dash-cam video surfaced on Facebook, showing a pair of men trying to stage an accident. Why? To try and claim insurance. Insurance fraud is a serious and frequent problem in the UK, where the video takes place, with 68,000 cases of motor insurance fraud reported in 2016 only, as the Association of British Insurers reports.
Luckily, the lady driving the car had the upper hand in this unfortunate situation and we’re sure that the moped-driving-accident-causing men who were trying to pull this scam off regret it. Scroll down to see what happened.
