That does suck. I had a woman who stopped at a yield sign. She started to go, and I let off the brake while looking to follow her. She immediately stopped, and so I hit her going <1MPH as I was just a millisecond to slow hitting the brakes myself. She was driving a junky old Ford Winstar, and she claimed I scratched her car where the license plate screw touched her bumper. USAA just replaced the bumper because it was a "textured scratch." My rate didn't increase though.
Edit: She also parked on the highway exit ramp which prevented people from going around and called the cops. The cop showed up and was just like "you shouldn't have called us" and left.
