But basically... we are all brainwashed by the media and TPTB who have an agenda!
And we ALWAYS fall for it!

I worked in auto claims for a few years. I do not see how this guy could make any money in this situation. He pulled from a side lot into a street were people had a established right of way. The only thing I could think of is maybe he was hoping the person he hit would offer him money?
Now, the bad side for the person that got hit is that their rates will most likely increase for using their uninsured motorist coverage, which is sad for the that driver.

We here in Ireland had a similar scam pushed on us, in particular by Nigerian "asylum seekers", in particular they would focus on women driving alone. What they would do is drive along slightly below the speed limit, let the car behind catch up with them then jam on the brakes, car behind would hit them.
In virtually every case, there would be about 4 or 5 immigrants in the car, and all would suddenly have whiplash, the victim was in the wrong as they had rear ended them, and the fact that it was 4 or 5 testimonies against 1...
This usually resulted in payouts by the insurance companies, easy money right there
