Helpful Tips

If you're involved in an accident, you need to stop your car and stay at the scene. If your car and/or property is the only thing that was damaged, you won't need to stay at the scene, but you still need to report the incident.

If you're not the only one involved in the accident, be sure to exchange information with the other drivers, if possible. Swap names, addresses, phone numbers, driver's license and tag numbers, and insurance information. Be sure to also get full descriptions of all vehicles, and names and addresses of any witnesses if there were any.
