    Q425: I have been in a road traffic accident, nobody was injured and we both stopped, do I need to report it to the police?

    If both parties stopped at the scene and exchanged names and addresses there is no requirement to report the accident to the police. Road traffic law has been complied with and the police will not take a report.
