New Collision Reporting Centre open at the OPP detachment on Highway 35 in Lindsay

KAWARTHA LAKES-There another option for collision reporting in Kawartha Lakes.

The City of Kawartha Lakes OPP detachment located at #3028 Highway 35, now houses a Collision Reporting Centre (CRC) that will provide a convenient and safe location for drivers to report a property damage (PD) related motor vehicle collision.

A PD collision is one in which no injuries are sustained to any of the parties involved and there is no significant damage to any of the vehicles or any other property, such as a guide rail or fence.

Police say drivers involved in PD collisions can move their vehicles, if drivable, to a safe location off the highway, which reduces the risk of a secondary collision involving approaching vehicles. Another benefit to road users is that rapid clearance of the vehicles away from traffic helps reduce congestion that often results from these vehicles remaining on the roadside.

Reporting minor collisions of this nature to a CRC eliminates the need to call 911 and have a police officer attend, thus supporting a more effective use of police resources by allowing frontline officers to focus more time on proactive efforts to enhance public safety according to police.

The CRC will be available Monday to Friday from 8:00a.m. until 4:00p.m. It will not be available on weekends or holidays, during which times motorist can call 1-888-310-1122 for detailed instructions on reporting the incident.
