Re: First accident...

Nope! Still ongoing! The passenger is now claiming the taxi driver hit a post AFTER I hit him, when he was moving the taxi off the road. This would be a significant point in my favour regarding the damage to the front bumper, so my solictors are making enquiries about that. So far, it seems like I'l...

Re: BBC News article - Highways England launches campaign to stop tailgating

Must be easy enough to get a camera that can measure the gap and fine appropriately. I think the problem with this is that if you get cut up by someone just as you're going through one of these enforcement cameras, then you could get fined for tailgating because of one brief moment where you were a...

Re: First accident...

Good point.

My father has been handling all the calls as understandably, I'm unable to do so. He says he's mostly just been highlighting the "suspicious nature" of their claims being altered etc.

Re: First accident...

My insurance company already know that I think the other company are trying to fraud them out of money. It is extraordinarily unlikely for an insurance company to knowingly involve themselves in this sort of fraud, If there is fraud involved it is on the part of the taxi driver and his passenger. O...
