bad policy if this is true, and here's why:

I can't believe that it's actually any sort of policy that no ticket is written when it is clear which party is at fault in a traffic accident. What good could possibly come of that? I know of 2 people who were involved in accidents where the officer (I belive they were both WPD) stated at the scene that one party was at fault but failed to issue any citations (and in one case refused to file a police report) resulting in headaches with the insurance company going after the responsible party to pay for the damages - after all, how does the insurance company determine who is at fault if there is no written record? At that point it's one person's word against the other. Do you really expect the guilty party to admit guilt to the insurance company after the fact? I'd like to hear one good reason for this lack of procedure and recordkeeping.
