are you in enough minor collissions that this is an issue?
The collision doesn't have to be minor. My car was hit from the back on a public street causing over $4,000 in damages, no police report. It took 5 weeks to get compensated. A police report would have taken a couple of weeks off that time.
did you go back and show the cop the $4000 estimate?
I've thought about it, but not sure if I want to rile up a cop. I've mentioned it to everybody I know who. I now carry around what's called a "blue form" even though it's not blue any more. It's basically a citizens accident report. You have two weeks to file it with the state.
