allstate accident forgiveness

I was just listening to an ad by allstate offering 'accident forgiveness' which more or less is not raising your rates for certain accidents, even if it was your fault.

It then occurred to me that it really shouldn't be called an accident if it was your fault. If you are rear ended, it is an accident. If you rear-end someone, it should be called an on-purpose.

Example: "Oh, man, I got into a terrible on-purpose today. Guess I shouldn't have been reading Garfield and putting on my man-lip gloss while driving."
