Karen Calls The Cops On Driver She Crashed Into, Regrets It After They See The Surveillance Footage
Getting into a car accident is one of the fastest ways to ruin your day. Whether it was your fault or not, the hassle of dealing with a stranger and just crossing your fingers that they will be reasonable, calling the cops, exchanging insurance information, and scheduling repairs for your car can take a lot of energy. In most situations, it is pretty straightforward who is at fault and responsible, but the beauty of car insurance is that when you happen to have a bad day and bump into someone else, you should be covered.
And yet, there are always a few drivers who just don’t understand the rules of the road or the rules of social interactions. One man shared a story on the Entitled Parents subreddit detailing his nightmare experience with a Karen who could not take accountability for her actions. Below, you can read the full story that might make you want to rip your hair out, and then let us know in the comments what you think about it. And then if you’re looking for another Bored Panda piece featuring frustratingly entitled parents to read next, look no further than right here.

Car insurance is a beautiful thing. It may be expensive and a nuisance to pay each month, especially if you are a cautious driver, but it is always worth it to have. Not to mention that it is illegal not to have it. In the United States, for example, the penalties vary per state for being caught driving without insurance, but it always includes a fine, often includes a suspension of the driver’s license, and sometimes even includes jail time. Some states are stricter than others, with Delaware enforcing the heftiest fine, of $1,500, and a 6 month period of license suspension. In Connecticut, however, uninsured drivers can be met with up to 5 years in jail. Regardless of what state a driver is in, it is never worth it to avoid paying insurance.
The driver also clarified some details in the comments
Yet somehow, there continues to be a handful of drivers who refuse to get insurance. I understand the burden of paying about $150 per month to an insurance company, but that is part of the responsibility of being a driver. Unfortunately, not having insurance is a huge risk that nobody should be taking. According to a 2021 study, however, about 12.6% of American drivers are uninsured. Some states are even worse, though, with 29.4% of drivers in Mississippi lacking coverage. Even if you think you are an excellent driver, it is impossible to predict what will happen on the road. Car insurance gives you peace of mind and prevents you from suddenly being saddled with exorbitant bills (not to mention the fines associated with driving uninsured).
In this particular situation, it is very clear that the woman was in the wrong and is responsible for all of the damage she caused. But having car insurance would not only help the driver of the Jeep, it would have helped her too. We would love to hear your thoughts on this situation in the comments. Have you ever had an encounter with an uninsured driver on the road? I hope you haven’t, but if you have, I hope you were not responsible for any damages. Be careful out there, keep your eyes on the road, and watch out for any crazy Karens trying to swindle you out of money.
