Do I need to report a minor traffic accident to the police?

No. You only have to report an accident to the police department if the accident involves: (1) injury to or death of any person; or (2) damage to any vehicle involved to the extent that it cannot be driven under its own power in its customary manner without further damage or hazard to the vehicle, other traffic elements, or the roadway, and therefore requires towing. Otherwise, you may exchange driver, vehicle, and insurance information with the other driver.
