Had a accident? Been a victim of road rage?

Please read these very important tips from MASSBUG: Bike Tips: Reporting traffic incidents to police

What to do at the scene of an incident - At the scene of any crash, you should try to:

  • Remember you & others can be in shock & may not be completely with it;
  • Make sure the scene is safe, assist any injured person, call police & ambulance if necessary;
  • Exchange details with other vehicle drivers/riders and witnesses For any incident you want to report to police, record;
  • Registration number and description of vehicle (colour, make)
  • Description of driver (and occupants) if possible;
  • Contact details of any witnesses.

Record the rego by keying the number into your mobile, writing on your hand. (always carry a pen in your outer backpack/pannier pocket), or using a rock on the pavement – don’t rely on memory.

Reporting an incident to the police
Report as soon as possible. Go to any police station to report the incident as soon as you can (“after work” might be ok but it will count against you if you leave it too long).

Tell them that you want to report a traffic incident or dangerous driver behaviour or whatever, and use the magic words: “I want to make a statement and I’d be prepared to go to court if necessary”.

Without this, they won’t want their time wasted and will usually try to turn you away. It helps if you know your road rules and can tell them what offence has been committed. (more information in link)
