Traffic Accidents

Public Safety will take a report for traffic accidents that occur on the Malibu Campus. Public Safety reports do not assign fault. Reports contain the facts as reported to Public Safety officers by the involved party/parties.

State law says the driver of any motor vehicle “who is in any manner involved in an accident” in this state (or his/her designated representative) must report the accident to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within 10 days if anyone was injured or killed, or if there was more than $500.00 damage to any one person’s property. The law requires this report regardless of fault. The report must be made on a SR-1 form. Driver’s must also exchange their insurance company’s name and address, and their policy number, at the accident scene.
