• ImRich,

    This has been covered time and time again. You are simply using this opportunity to make "suggestions" that are really just ignorant slams on the police.

    You are seen violating a traffic law by a police officer, you will receive a ticket. The point of the ticket is to teach you a lesson NOT to violate said traffic law, so that you won't keep doing it and cause an accident.

    Now you violate a traffic law (and likely there was no cop present to witness) and you cause an accident. Here you will not likely receive the ticket because the accident itself is your punishment.
    If the Accident was a serious bodily injury to the other party... there you may still receive the ticket on top of everything else but aside from that, no.

    Personally I dont agree with that, but that is how it is.

    It has nothing to do with police being untrained, lazy on paperwork, or scared of lawyers. That would be you being a jerk towards police.

    Personally I think if an accident, any accident is caused but the ignorance of the driver( as opposed to equipment malfunction like a tire blowout) and there is damage to a second party's person or property, there should be a ticket. Period!

    Only if you wreck your own car and hurt your own self and NO DAMAGE to others persons or property, should there ever not be a ticket.

  • Who cares if they get a ticket? Sic your insurance company on them. $150 ticket, that'll learn 'em real good!

  • Again, "no citations will be issued." ???

    This is beginning to look like an alarming trend in Victoria. Accidents, people run red lights, drag race, drive recklessly and...


    Note to VPD: If my vehicle is smashed from the side or from behind by a stupid driver and you attempt to 'no bill' it, and shrug it off - Don't be surprised when you find me in your face.
