Involved in a Traffic Collision? Here’s what to do:
First, stop and assess the situation.
At the scene of a collision, you are required by state law to show driver license, registration card and evidence of financial responsibility (insurance), and current address to other involved parties as well as any peace officers present. If you cannot show proof of financial responsibility, namely from an insurance company with a current policy number, you face a potential citation and fine.
If any witnesses are at the scene, it is beneficial to the collision investigator to have them remain on scene so a statement can be obtained for the report.
Per California Vehicle Code Section 20012, traffic collision reports may only be released to the following parties: A party involved in the incident (driver, passenger, non-motorist, witness or owner of damaged property including a damaged vehicle)
