Accidents are a common occurrence on Florida’s highways and interstates, and many people are often injured as a result.
But some Florida drivers have discovered illegal ways to take advantage of law abiding motorists and their insurance companies. These drivers commit auto insurance fraud and hurt all of us by causing everyone’s insurance rates to go up, according to SBWire.com.
Here are some tell-tale signs of someone who is trying to get you involved in an accident so that they can file a claim against your insurance:
(1) They may weave in and out of traffic, especially if several cars are on the road and traffic is moving slowly.
(2) Then the driver will brake immediately after he or she changes lanes in an effort get you to rear-end their vehicle.
(3) They also use these dangerous maneuvers at traffic lights, where it is easy to cut in front of another driver before stopping suddenly at a red light.
FloridaInsurance.com says, “A vigilant driver is the safest. If you see someone swerving, being suspicious, or driving in unpredictable patterns, distance yourself from them. ”
