Incidents that are not covered are those that can be found to be morally wrong and in some cases may lead to one having to spend some time in jail. 

It is important to understand that the comprehensive cover is there to cover you should things go against you on the road or while your car is parked. However, any recklessness or morally wrong incidents won’t be covered.
