Could I make bank if I turn my parking brake on while driving on the freeway?
When someone rear-ends you, it's always their fault. Could I exploit this?

The insurance company thought about the "Likes of you" trying something like this & they got the answer. NFW Hose'
. First, it is highly unlikely you could lock up your back tires so they stop rotating at highway speed & if you did you would slide out of control off the highway & into the ditch without anybody touching you. Maybe if you are lucky your Pinto will burst into flames and your doors will jamb because you are on your roof and you can not escape. Hopefully the car behind you brought marshmallows (for the fire)
Then there will be an investigation done by the insurance and auto accident people and they look at the skid mark on the highway and the wear on your tires and only the rear ones got skid marks on them as part of the tread is missing so you got a square tire. Normal working brakes activate the front tires first so the skid should have happened on the front and you got NUTTIN. So you never stepped on the brake pedal so the brake lights are not activated...so your vehicle is faulty...with no working brake lights.
While I am not exact on the terminology, it works like that. You corn-holed yourself. No Bubba needed. Besides that there is the hospital bill you will be paying for for yourself. & you got no car.
How did you win?

No brake checking is illegal and makes you at fault. You could very well loose control when hit and kill yourself or someone else. Not a good move.

BRILLIANT IDEA. You could also make jail for insurance fraud.

You could try but using just the E-brake doesn't slow down the vehicle very fast ( giving the person behind you lots of time to react ) and if you lock the rear brakes and your vehicle has ABS, it can cause an ABS fault. Then of course there is the whole issue of potentially locking the rear brakes and loosing control of the vehicle...

Hey dipchit...there will be skid marks from your back tires and they'll throw the book at you. Hope they put you in a cell with Bubba and he reams you a new butthole.

There are many drivers with dash-cams and insurance fraud will result in prison time.

when they play back their dash cam of the event you will look like the idiot you are and be charged with dangerous driving.

It's not their fault if you make it happen deliberately.

(a) A person who drives a vehicle upon a highway in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property is guilty of reckless driving....(c) ... shall be punished by imprisonment in a county jail for not less than five days ... ot less than one hundred forty-five dollars ....
If he has a dash cam, you lose. If he doesn't, he may simply shoot you.

Too much chance of injuries, or getting caught IMO.
Just get a job and EARN money.
