How to protect yourself from staged collisions

The first step is to be cautious. Don’t accept the right-of-way when it’s not yours, and never turn in front of another vehicle if the driver waves you through. (Even if that driver is simply being polite, your actions can confuse other drivers and create a dangerous situation.)

The idea is to get you into a position where it’s possible to make the crash look like it was your fault. One scenario is if you’re waiting to make a left-hand turn -- the oncoming driver might wave you through, but then accelerate and hit you. This is called "the left-hand bullet" and is often done in parking lots.

with drivers stopping to let someone out of a spot, and then ramming them.
