Traffic Accident Help

Fender Bender  I have been involved in a motor vehicle accident. Do I need to advise the police?
    Crash Notification Requirement for Injury/Damage
      Effective Date: January 1, 2010

    SB 314 requires any driver involved in an accident, resulting in the death or injury of a person or property damage in excess of $1500, to give notice of the accident immediately to a police officer or law enforcement agency by the quickest means available. In addition, SB 314:

    • Requires each driver involved in an accident to report if damage requires the towing of any of the involved vehicles from the scene.


    • Allows the Department of Transportation to increase the cost of damage that requires notification every five years based on any increase in the Portland- Salem Consumer Price Index.


    • Exempts law enforcement officials performing a lawful intervention technique (PIT maneuver) or accidents occurring with a person committing a criminal offense. The measure also exempts operators of snowmobiles, Class I all-terrain vehicles or Class III all-terrain vehicles.


    SB 314 stipulates that a driver or occupant (when the driver is unable to report) that fails to report an accident to a police officer or law enforcement agency based on the provisions of the law commits a Class A traffic violation.
