Should insurers pay for accident investigations?

Posted by Martin Finucane April 2, 2007 06:20 PM


Selectmen are considering charging auto insurance companies for the cost of accident investigations by police.

Town Administrator Paul LeBeau said that he doesnít know of any other towns in the state that charge for routine investigations, but that it is done in other states.

LeBeau said he didnít know how much money could be raised, but he said local police investigate more than 200 accidents each year.

LeBeau said he didnít know yet whether the plan would require Town Meeting approval.
