I. In cases involving injury or death, keep traffic accident scene intact and dial “110” for police assistance and “119” for emergency medical aid.
II. When calling “110,” clearly state the location and time of the accident, vehicles involved, and whether there are injuries. The caller should also provide their name, address, contact phone number, etc. and then wait for the arrival of police officers.
III. Criminal liability for the individual causing a traffic incident can be reduced if this person personally calls to report the traffic accident.
IV. Persons involved in a traffic incident may go to the “accident handling section” of the traffic police department after 10-15 days have passed to inquire about assessments decisions of police regarding the case.
V. Persons involved in traffic accidents may first mediate between themselves for compensation settlement if the accident only cased damage to vehicles or possessions, or when if there are only slight injuries. They may also seek assistance from their insurance firms. If no settlement can be reached, they may consider taking the case to the arbitration committee at the district administration of local government for mediation. Another option is to pursue civil litigation at a district court. Traffic accidents as such fall within the category of civil affairs, and police are prohibited by law from intervening.
VI. In cases involving serious injury or death, investigation is automatically initiated by the police.
