I've never felt comfortable with this decision for a number of reasons but even our government has joined in by removing the requirement to report collisions to the police. Morley Lymburner, publisher of Blue Line Magazine, a Canadian trade publication for the police writes on the subject. Traffic policing, especially in relation to collisions, is important to neighbourhood safety.
