Q. Last night my car was hit while parked and I got the other parties car insurance information and made a report to my car insurance company. Was I supposed to also contact JPD and file a report with them too?


Dear Juneau Resident,

You do not need to report the collision to JPD. You do need to report the collision to the State of Alaska if the incident caused an injury or damage in excess of $501. Luckily the forms are available online and are not burdensome. Here is the website: http://doa.alaska.gov/dmv/forms/forms.htm

Below is a quote directly from the Alaska Driver's Manual.

If you are involved in a crash, which results in bodily injury or death to a person, or property
damage in excess of $501, you must provide - within 15 days - proof of insurance to the
Division of Motor Vehicles. Proof of insurance is required from all the drivers involved in
the crash regardless of who caused the crash. This means you must provide the proof of
insurance even if you did not cause the crash. The requirement to notify the Division of
Motor Vehicles is in addition to any report given to the police or your insurance company.
Normally the officer investigating the crash will give a certificate of insurance form to the
drivers. The certificate of insurance forms are also available at any DMV office or on the
state web page.
If you were uninsured or you fail to provide the proof within 15 days, your driverís license
will be suspended for 90 days for a first occurrence and 1 year for a second occurrence.
