Do Wilson Police Officers have to issue a citation to determine who was at fault?
Back To FAQ List
Since Wilson Police Officers do not determine who is at fault at an accident, there is no requirement that an officer has to issue a citation to the driver who was at fault. This decision is left to the officer’s discretion. Officers are encouraged to use factors such as reckless driving, alcohol or drug use, severity of injuries, or extensive property damage when determining whether or not to issue a citation.
