    They will likely undelete your deleted files and charge you for that time you were speeding on that spirited ride! When you delete a file, it's not really deleted until it's overwritten or the disc is formatted. The first character is just changed to an underscore (_) . Always, ALWAYS stay away from the police. The whole system has gone bad. As soon as you hand them the SD card, they will be looking at you. With you they can prove vehicle and driver.

    That. would require the insurer employee, to actually do their job, which nowadays is a real rarity..lol Besides it was likely a few thousand dollars, so not "cost effective" to have the resources tied up.

    There are indeed penalties, for filing a fake police report, however, this wasn't a fake report, (the incident did indeed occur, he lied about the circumstances. Again because it was a relatively, minor amount, even if criminal charges were laid, unless the driver had a significant criminal record, it would have ended with probation or even a conditional discharge.

    I know that certain situations (fake address, ownership) warrants the claimant to have the whole fraud book sent at him/her making them pretty much uninsurable through regular insurance.

    In your case as an example, you had solid video evidence that could not be subjectively interpreted and showed that the other driver full on lied... that should be some kind of offense...
