Don't Forget to File an Accident Report!

People may not need to file an accident report in order to collect damages for the occurrence of a car accident. However, filing an accident report is typically recommended in order to most strongly ensure insurance will cover a car accident. 
To this end, after a car accident occurs, the individual involved can collect information related to the accident in a piece of documentation, as may be available either through the local police station or on the website for the particular jurisdiction’s Department of Motor Vehicles. 
An accident report may not be required by the particular insurance company which covers the driver involved in the car accident, but the company is likely to be able to provide insurance more effectively and efficiently due to the accident report. A car accident report should thus be issued as soon as possible after the car accident.

Stay Safe with a Driving Curfew

Stay Safe with a Driving Curfew

A driving curfew for 17-year-old motorists will have the effect of preventing drivers at or under this age from using their cars after a certain point in the day. This is one form of the many driving limitations which may be imposed on 17-year-old motorists. Such restrictions may also extend to the passengers who are permitted to be in the car with a 17-year-old driver, both in terms of the nature of their relationship with the other people in the car as well as the number of people who can be in the car at the same time.
17-year-old drivers should thus look into whether these driving limitations, or any others, will be imposed on them, as is likely to be the case. Beyond this caution, it should be noted that curfew laws for 17-year-old drivers can vary by state or local jurisdiction.
