Walk-In Accident Reporting Active

Local authorities have instituted the walk-in accident reporting phase for their jurisdictions.

During this phase, officers and deputies will only respond to certain types of accidents:

 Injury, possible injury or death to any person
 Possible impairment of a driver due to drugs or alcohol
 Hit-and-run incidents
 Incidents where there is a disturbance between the parties involved
 Any hazardous material situation
 When the accident results in major traffic congestion
 When there is damage to a vehicle to the extent that towing is required.

All other drivers involved in accidents are encouraged to exchange insurance,
registration and contact information and call the appropriate agency or come down once conditions have improved to report incidents.

Kansas law requires drivers to have their headlights on when their wipers are in continuous use as a result of rain, sleet or snow.
