Traffic Accident Reporting
Programs that accept reports regarding traffic accidents or collisions occurring on public roads, in parking lots or on other property. Police are not always called to attend accidents and it is often the responsibility of those directly involved in an incident to inform police about the circumstances under which the accident occurred and the results of the accident. In some jurisdictions, all accidents must be reported. In other areas, an accident must involve injury, a death or property damage that exceeds a specified amount before reporting becomes mandatory, even in situations where no other vehicle was involved. In some jurisdictions, traffic accident reports can be filed online.
