Name, Number and Maybe Even E-Mail August 21, 2008

I was driving home the other day and traffic was horrendous.  There was a collision involving a bicycle and a car.  An ambulance and fire truck were present taking care of the injured bicyclist.   There must have been a dozen or so people standing around who had gotten out of their vehicles to help. 

This reminded me of something.  If you see a collision please give your name, number, address and/or e-mail to the parties involved or, better yet, the police at the scene. 

If you don’t want to give your address then a telephone number or email is fine. 

Many times I’ll get involved in a case a few weeks or months after the collision.  The person that caused the collision may have admitted fault to the injured party and the witnesses at the scene.  But, when confronted by their insurance company and the potential of higher premiums some people’s memory changes.  That is why it is important for witnesses who know the truth to share their information with the parties and police.

If you were involved in a collision wouldn’t you want others to stand up and tell the truth too?
