If I am involved in an auto accident, should I move my car?

Answer: While your safety or the safety of others may impact this issue, usually it is better NOT to move any of the cars involved in the auto accident until the police arrive.  Once the police arrive, they will be able to access the situation and will tell you if and when to move your car.  Moving the cars involved in the accident will often impede the investigation of the police and may prevent them from issuing a citation to the person they believe caused the accident.
