Reporting Minor Accidents
Council has a Minor Accident Report Form that lets us know when, where and how the accident happened so we can investigate the condition of the road, and make sure it is safe for everyone to travel on.
This form is for tourists to fill in AND for locals, including those friendly locals that have helped out at minor incidents by pulling a car out of a ditch and someone get back on the road. Please remember if we don't know an accident has happened, then we don't know to investigate the road condition, and make repairs if needed.
This is form is for our information only. Simply fill out the form, hand it back in at any of our service centres or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
To download a form visit our Roading Application Forms page.
Remember that if you are involved in a crash while driving, and you are not badly injured, the first thing you must do is stop and check to see if anyone is hurt and provide assistance. If someone is hurt, you must tell a police officer as soon as possible and no later than 24 hours after the crash.
If no one is hurt, you must give your name, address and vehicle registration (and, if asked, the name and address of the owner of the vehicle you are driving, if it isn't your vehicle) as soon as possible, but no later than 48 hours after the crash to the owner or driver of any other vehicle that has been damaged, or the owner of any property that has been damaged.
If you can't find these people, you must tell a police officer as soon as possible and no later than 60 hours after the crash.
