Historic City News was notified today by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles that drivers can now file their required report of a traffic crash online — saving time and money as well as making it easier to complete the process while the details are fresh in your mind.
A law enforcement report is not required in Florida collisions where the crash resulted in less than $500 damage, no injuries resulted, no vehicle required a tow truck, no driver was impaired, all vehicles involved were occupied and there was no “hit and run” vehicle.
“A large number of collisions in St Johns County fit that description,” our local FHP public affairs spokesman told Historic City News today. “Those involved are already required to file a report within ten days of the crash; we think this new online form will prove to be easier and well received.”
The simple-to-use online questionnaire will guide users through the completion of the report. Once completed, the report will be automatically submitted to the Department and can also be saved, and printed, if needed.
If you are involved in a collision that qualifies, you can use the “Driver Report of Traffic Crash” form found at http://www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/misc/CrashReport/
