I just wonder if the majority of accidents where folks rear end someone is actually caused by bad driving in this day and age by the preceding vehicle.I am not sure how it would effect Ins Companies other than it makes their responsibility easier to define, but it certainly makes the law an ASS.

You're alive and well and home! THANK GOD FOR THAT! My dad always used to say, "You can only fall so far before you're bound to hit rock bottom and bounce back". I get a feeling you are rock bottom.

Sorry about your Ram,
in San Diego we have a large community of a certain group of Asians, they don't drive very well, they speed up the on ramps to merge with the 65 MPH traffic & almost as soon as they have merged, they slow down to about 50 MPH. They have caused so many accidents that local truckers won't use the furthest right hand lane while in that general area. We also have the law that states that the driver in back is at fault.
We also have teams of people that cause rear end accidents to collect insurance, staged accidents . “Hammer & nail” and “Swoop and Squat” are two of the most common staged car accidents.

The “hammer” car is generally the car causing the impact. It is often abandoned after an accident. The “nail” car is usually filled with passengers who then file inflated claims to their insurance companies.

The “Swoop and Squat” usually involves two cars and they frequently target a single occupancy automobile so there are no witnesses to the collision. The “squat” car usually contains two people, and then positions it in front of the victims’ car. Then they slowly close the distance between you and the other vehicle. Then the “swoop” vehicle quickly changes lanes in front of the “squat” vehicle and stops suddenly. The innocent party rear ends the “squat” car and the “swoop” vehicle typically leaves the scene. The suspects in the “squat” vehicle innocently state that “this vehicle came out of nowhere and forced me to brake”.
