Staten Island Pilot Program Will Make Property Damage Only Collisions No Longer a 911 Call

Starting Monday March 18th, vehicle collisions resulting property damage only, will not be required to be reported to the police. Instead, the drivers will be responsible for exchanging their information, and a report of Motor Vehicle Accident should be filed with the DMV.

Drivers need to call 911 immediately if the following occurs:
A person or domestic animal is injured, needs medical assistance or is killed;
a vehicle involved in the crash is inoperable; the owner cannot immediately be located when a parked vehicle or other property is damaged.
