Re: Should I have called the police?
I've never known that to be true in California. I've been involved with 3 accidents where police were called and no one got a ticket.
Now if you get in an accident and spill your beer all over the wheel and dash, yeah, maybe the red and blue sirens might not be the most welcome sight. But if you're not doing something illegal, I don't see how a cop can write you a mandatory default ticket as a penance for doing one of his jobs as an officer.
But that does remind me. I've had 2 younger cops try and talk their way out of writing a report. I told them "Thanks but I'll still take a report" and both times it has kept the other insurance company from being weasels. You'll be surprised how petty they get.
