Q2. My car camera recorded someone hitting my car deliberately and pretending to be knocked down by my car. Will that person be charged? Will I be charged with careless driving?


This appears to be a case of injury feigning rather than a negligent pedestrian. Assuming that the acts of  “hitting…deliberately” and “pretending to be knocked down” can be proved, it is likely that you will not be charged with careless driving. On the other hand, if that person tried to extort money from you, he/she may be charged with fraud or blackmail (depending on the factual circumstances).
