Warning about new car insurance scam…. ‘Flash for Cash’

View all the Blog posts

A BBC report tells us of yet  another scam which we all end up paying-for in our insurance premiums!

The scammers appear to flash their headlights to invite you out from a junction. They then ram your car so they can then blame you for the ‘accident’ and claim huge amounts of money from your insurer.

Hopefully you all ready know what the Highway Code says about flashing of headlights?

 The Highway Code says: “Flashing headlights. Only flash your headlights to let other road users know that you are there. Do not flash your headlights to convey any other message or intimidate other road users. Never assume that flashing headlights is a signal inviting you to proceed. Use your own judgement and proceed carefully.”
