TRENTON — A Woodbridge man was arrested Wednesday after being indicted for twice claiming thieves stripped his motorcycle of its parts, when in fact he had a repair shop remove them so he could make insurance claims, state authorities said.

In May 2013, Lew Alicock, 31, called Pacific Specialty Insurance Company to report that parts from his Yamaha bike had been stolen while he was out of town for work, the state Attorney General’s Office said. He was issued a check for $ 5,513.

Alicock cashed the check and withdrew the money, authorities said, before calling Pacific and asking it to reissue the check to himself and the repair shop. The insurance company ordered a stop of the first check, but the money had been withdrawn. The bank repaid Pacific the full amount and pursued Alicock for the rest.

A rider comes home — to a big shock, July 18

I read the article by freelance writer Alex Binneboese. It appears he did his research by quoting accident statistics and premium comparisons between different jurisdictions.

However, he failed to compare the insurance products and laws of those jurisdictions. He should have looked into the reasons why Ontario insurance costs more.

First of all, the minimum liability limit in the Province of Ontario is $ 200,000 and not $ 1 million. He does not realize that Ontario automobile insurers pay a sizable annual assessment to OHIP to help fund the costs of motor vehicle injuries in Ontario. Geico in the U.S. does not have a similar assessment.
