Motorists can often fall victim to intentionally staged road accidents, which force insurance companies to pay out high claims. With some useful tips from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards Richard Gladman, here’s how you can try and stay clear of fraudulent scams.
Richard said: “Road rage is one of the reasons intentional collisions occur, but this can be avoided. Simply avoid reacting to another driver’s bad behaviour because this will only make matters worse. If you have made a mistake a friendly wave of apology can often defuse the situation.”
