Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost for an accident report?

If you order an accident report online, there is a $10 charge, which includes a surcharge from LexisNexis. If you choose to pick up an accident report at police headquarters, the cost is $0.25 per page. The typical accident report is 4 pages and costs $1.00.

How long will it take for my accident report to be available online?

In most cases, accident reports are available within a few days of the accident (not including weekends). However, there are various factors that can delay availability such as: if the accident is a hit & run, if one or more of the involved parties was arrested at the accident or other circumstances require additional investigation by the officer.

What are my obligations if I am involved in a motor vehicle accident, no one was injured and the damage to property is $1,000 or less?

If you are in an accident, you are required by the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law to stop and exchange information with the involved drivers. If the accident caused property damage only, then exchange information about your driver license, insurance, and registration with the involved drivers. If a parked vehicle or other property is damaged, or if a domestic animal is injured, you must locate the owner or contact the police.

What if no one is injured, but the property damage is $1,001 or more?

If the property damage to any person is $1,001 or more, all the involved drivers are required by the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law to file a Report of Motor Vehicle Accident (MV-104). File form MV-104 with the DMV no more than 10 days after the accident. The DMV can suspend your driver license if you fail to report an accident.

What if someone is injured or killed?

If a person is injured or killed, you are required by the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law to immediately notify the police.
All the involved drivers and the police must file an accident report with the DMV. It is a crime to leave the scene of an accident that causes personal injury or death.
The accident appears on the records of all the involved drivers. An accident listed on your driver record does not indicate that you were at fault.
