Local Member John McGrath MLA has welcomed a new online service which enables drivers to report crashes online with details of both personal injury and property damage.
“Residents of South Perth can report their motor vehicle crashes through an online reporting facility. This ‘onestop’ centralised government facility will cater for the users of both personal injury and property damage crash data. This is a great new service which reduces duplication of effort and will result in considerable efficiency and improvements in customer service as well as financial savings for all agencies involved,” said Mr McGrath.
Significant benefits of online crash reporting facility include:
- A 24 Hour/ 7 day a week facility available for the public to report their motor vehicle crash without the inconvenience of attending a police station;
- The ability for the crash reporter to immediately receive a copy of the report and references for insurance purposes;
- A link to the Department of Transport to verify data in real time and;
- Metro View (Street mapping application) and Google Earth for precise mapping and street speed zones for investigators and statistical purposes.
