People can report directly to the collision reporting centre if there are no personal injuries, there is no damage to private, municipal or highway property, no criminal activity is suspected, not a dangerous goods hauler, and not a federal, provincial or municipal vehicle. If this criteria are not met then an Officer will be called to investigate. In 2017 the reporting centre investigated 303 collisions.
