ATTT Minor Accident Form – What is considered a minor accident?
As established by the Executive order, a minor car accident happens in the case that the vehicles involved in the accident can be moved out of the way without any mechanic intervention, in other words, if the car is still operative and does not require a mechanic fix or to be towed away, and more importantly there is no people injured during the accident.
Minor car accident is when there is no injury and both cars can be moved
There is also a law that requires you to have a valid car insurance, which at least have a liability coverage (damage to third parties), otherwise you can also get a 100.00 USD fine.
We recommend everyone to carry their Minor Accident form and a valid car insurance to avoid the risk of getting a Fine.
