Good 7kimba, and my comment about driving irresponsibly wasn't aimed at you, it was in general, just so's ya know. :)

Mykie, I got my information from the insurance company. They said a police report wasn't necessary, but they HAVE asked me if I called the police to the scene. I have been reassured by them that I am doing everything that I need to do.

7kimba, you don't have to have the police come to file a report. YOu go down to the police station and tell them you need to file an incident report. (Accident report in some states) but it doesn't require police presence. Honestly, if you are behind the wheel and driving in your state, you should know these laws. If you don't, you are driving irresponsibly.

"Luckily no on was injured in the crash and Brit passed a sobriety test, proving it was a total accident."Um, what? so in order to be negligent or inattentive, you have to be drunk??and re: the whole "calling the police for a report" thing.. I live in Philly, and twice I have been hit and called the police, and they never showed :(and twice when I called the insurance company to file a claim, they asked about the police report and I had the joy of telling them that the police never came. (I'm not a cop) I'm guessing the police aren't as concerned with filing reports for car accidents here if no one is injured. and considering the crime rate, I can't say I blame them.

When the average non-celeb gets pulled over and given a sobriety test, is that usually done along side the road or do they get escorted to a fire station to be tested in private?It's not unusual to have minor accidents in that area at that time, but;* if you had legal proceedings still pending in the court regarding your judgment in driving, * and the judge in your custody case has already chastised your driving and won't allow you to drive your own kids, even with a court monitor,* and you have an able bodied employee sitting in the passenger seat, (most celebs prefer to have their security person do the driving,)then maybe getting behind the wheel isn't a good decision. Sure, she CAN drive if she wants to, but most of the legal proceedings against her right now have to do with poor choices.

I would agree the police DID need to be called in this situation because obviously the chances of a lawsuit are so much higher, and this way the media can't speculate that she was wasted. I just don't think it is necessary in most situations (states?) for us mere mortals. As far as whether she should be driving...I don't know about that, because I don't know what effect her medication has on her driving skills, and obvs. she is not the greatest driver. She was clearly at fault here, no one would argue that. However, driving around LA at 8pm, especially the area she was in can be dicey. There are so many cars, and it's so congested that there is a lot of start and stop driving. I just moved away from there to an area with less traffic, and I drive MUCH more quickly and there is not so much start and stop. Seriously, getting in a fender bender in LA does not seem outrageous, while I was there, many of my friends did!

I guess it probably differs slightly depending on which state that accident occurs in. Either way, I don't think the police needed to be called - in this situation. Just my opinion.

You are only supposed to call the police in an accident if someone is injured, you cannot safely operate one of the vehicles involved, if public property has been damaged (as in a guard rail, sign, etc) or you think one of the drives is under the influence of a substance.The police won't issue citations if the accident occurs on private property (i.e., a parking lot). Otherwise, you take down all driver and insurance information and file a report afterwards individually.OR, you can settle amongst yourself and save the headache of going through the insurance company.

I see the exact problem of the issue here regarding the cost of crash reports in the Texas area.pinkprincess is citing the cost to obtain crash reports/accident reports directly from the San Antonio Police Department. It is indeed $2.25, as per the website of the San Antonio Police Department. I checked. So she is correct in stating how much the amount on the checks her law firm cuts.JAG is also correct, if someone requests these reports directly from the Texas Department of Transportation. If you go to them, rather than to local police departments, the prices are as she's already quoted. I checked. You are both absolutely correct, and have not clued in that each other is talking about obtaining said reports from different departments (DoT and PD) and levels of government (State vs Municipal).Now hug each other.

The judge in her custody case admonished her driving skills, which is why she is no longer allowed to drive with her kids. She still has a court case looming about her lack of a license at the time she had that hit and run. She could still get probation for that.If she is so mentally ill, and/or on a lot of medication, then she probably shouldn't be driving. You can't argue that she's fine to be driving, then defend her many accidents because of some medical condition she may or may not have.Also, in California there is no settling on the road. The las requires making a dmv claim if there was property damage of more than $750 or anyone was injured (no matter how minor). The man has some back pain, which isn't unusual for getting hit at 15 mph, so he's probably going to have some lost wages and medical expense claims.

Holy cow! Chill. Jag, I'm SO right there with you. On the night it happened, the media even reported that the police "over reacted" to the minor incident. However as it turns out they were following SOP by giving Brit a breathalyzer test, WHICH SHE PASSED. No citations were written because both parties had valid insurance, and there wasn't "reckless driving" involved. Now, that being said, IF the other driver wanted to press charges against her, he COULD if he could prove she was negligent. Just him SAYING she was putting on makeup isn't enough, there would have to be corroborating witnesses. HOWEVER, I will readily admit that Brit is a HORRIBLE DRIVER and really shouldn't be driving. As much as I love her, that's the truth.

Her hair is still not looking so good here. I can see that she is making an effort to clean up her act but there is a spark that seems to have gone from her. Her eyes almost seem dead.
