Police Accident Policy Now in Effect
Posted 6:25 p.m.
Though it’s best to stay home tonight if you can, our Police Department will only be responding to accident reports that meet the following criteria:
- Hit and run.
- One or more vehicles are not drivable.
- Active argument or conflict between the drivers.
If you call in a routine accident (703-691-3121, TTY 711) that does not meet the above criteria, you will be directed to exchange information with the other driver and to notify your insurance company.
If you need to drive, have emergency supplies in your vehicle: water, food, blankets, flashlight, charged smartphone and extra batteries at a minimum.
