THE POLICE ARRIVE - COOPERATE
Even though the police arrive AFTER the accident occurred, and they did not see what happened at the time of the accident, let them do their job and do not hinder their investigation of the accident scene.
The police officer’s role is to conduct an investigation, gather all the facts and evidence, and clear the accident as quickly as possible. They are there to determine who was at fault and at what percentage.
Their responsibility is to be unbiased, impartial and fair. They are not on anyone’s side, nor are they psychologists, lawyers, or collision reconstruction engineers. Any arguments should be handled in a court of law.

A Word To The Wise About DASH CAMS
- It is your property and no one has a right to take it away from you without a search warrant.
- Make sure your dash cam actually recorded the accident before saying to anyone that you "have it on video" or you could be charged with tampering or destroying evidence, even if it didn’t record it.
- Review your dash cam footage, notify the police officer to include the evidence in the police report. Keep a copy.
- New evidence can be submitted and amended to police reports even after the report has been filed.
