    Would be interesting to see if the insurance company numbers confirm a decrease or is merely that police no longer attend some damage only accidents, looks like only a small decrease when an injury occurs which would have involved a police report.

      Kudoes to the police… they’re finally watching the roads, and people are starting to take notice. Less stupidity allowed = less accidents.

    Are there less or more vehicles on the road?

    Is this because most accidents aren’t reported anymore. A lot of ppl don’t even bother calling the police anymore and just deal with it on their own. My vehicle was struck from behind but not reported so… these reports aren’t very accurate just saying
