Yes. Here he is driving his Rolls.

If I were a multimillionaire, I would have multiple independent car services drive me around as I would not want the liability of hitting someone and getting sued by our litigious society. Shift that liability to someone else and play it safe.

What, multimillionaires can't afford insurance?
Insurance will only cover you so much. In fact, I tried to up my liability insurance and the insurance company won't do it claiming I'm at their max that they will give me. Then I tried to get gap insurance, and they won't do it because my house isn't a standard house in a cookie cutter neighborhood, I'm on acreage where the farmer pulling crops off my land adds liability that won't allow me to be covered.

Certainly if Trump decides to drive like a maniac and tbone someone, people would go after him for millions, far more than any normal auto insurance policy would cover. He could easily find a way to cut a sizable settlement check, but I'm guessing he's the type that would bury you in mounds of legal fees and court costs for a very long time to make it not worth your while. Sleezy but legal - slegal.

Yeah, fair enough. But I'm a big believer that if you're a responsible driver your chances of getting into that kind of situation is a lot lower. Even so, I still max out my liability coverage.

It's amusing and a little scary to see these dashcam videos of people running out from the curb and bouncing off the car to try to defraud you and/or your insurance company. The best advertisements for a dashcam are dashcam videos.

I know a guy that takes Uber everywhere even though he is filthy rich, purely because he likes to drink and doesn't want the liability. He even owns a limo, but would prefer to take Uber so the liability is on the Uber driver, not him and his driver. When you are a multimillionaire, you have to worry about these things. I'm nowhere near that level, but still worry about it.
