Ottawa Police planning to streamline accident reporting process, cut costs and lower Ottawa accident reporting times.
Ottawa Accident Report
Ottawa Police are planning to make improvements to their accident reporting system. The accident reporting process should then be faster, safer, and more efficient due to the new technology being used as well as designated Collision Reporting Centres (CRC) in Ottawa.
Motorists who are involved in accidents and who have not suffered injuries and have a vehicle that can still be driven will be able to attend one of the three designated reporting centres (open 7 days a week ) . The accident report will need to be filed within 24 hours. Ottawa’s 3 reporting centres will be located at 474 Elgin Street, 211 Huntmar Drive and 3343 St. Joseph Boulevard.
On average, it takes 32 minutes before an available officer arrives on an Ottawa accident scene and the accident reporting process takes approximately 72-minutes. Now, with the new system in place, the process will be quicker it will also alleviate traffic around the accident. Now under the new system, Ottawa accidents will be submitted electronically which will not only save time, it will save money , dropping the cost of each report $249 to $167.
