Sometimes they won't come, even then. I worked for a police station that neighbored the LAPD, and most of their collision calls they simply advised the caller to take down the other person's information. They usually only sent a unit out to take a report if there was suspected injury, or possibility thereof. Or, y'know, if the cops were particularly bored that day...

in CA tickets aren't generally issued for accidents. Doesn't mean fault isn't determined.

In your case, you were following too closely - if the person in front of you has to stop suddenly, you shouldn't hit them. However, I've got no clue how fault is determined in Michigan - I guess people said it's a no fault state, does that really mean that if someone rear ends you that you have to pay for the damage to your car?

If you couldnt stop in time then you were following too closely. In NY in a situation like this you would be found at fault.

I would call your insurance and find out if any claims have been made against your account.

I got a ticket in an accident once.

I was driving my 5 speed manual Chevy Colorado and was coming up to a red light in the middle of winter, snow on the road in a 30MPH zone. I was about 50 feet from the person in front of me going about 20mph in the process of coming to a stop. The person in front of me was also coming to a stop. When the light turned green I let off the brake and started to change gears into a lower gear to start accelerating, but the person in front of me continued to come to a full stop. At a fucking green light. I hit the brakes but it was snowy so I slid into her anyways. also the person behind me ran into the back of me as well.

She had zero damage, somehow I hit her just so, so that the entire force of the crash went into her hitch. I had about $7k in damage (at the time the truck was only about 6 months old) between hitting her in the front and the person rear ending me.

Now, on to the relevant part. I got a ticket for running into the person in front of me, i forget the actual charge, failure to yield maybe?. Yet what urked me the most is the person behind me dint get a ticket. He rear-ended me as well, shouldn't he get a ticket too?

This was in Michigan btw.
