New rules for reporting crashes from Wednesday

New rules for reporting traffic crashes in NSW will come into effect next week. 
From Wednesday, October 15, police will only be required to attend and investigate crashes if a person is killed or injured, if parties fail to exchange particulars, or if a driver appears to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. 
Drivers involved in traffic crashes where their vehicle needs to be towed – and none of the above criteria apply –  will be able to organise their own tow, leave the area, and later report the crash to the Police Assistance Line on 131 444.
