                                       Traffic Accidents
          Source:National Immigration Agency, Ministry of the Interior
          Date:2005/7/11
I.         In cases involving injury or death, keep traffic accident scene intact and dial
           “110” for police assistance and “119” for emergency medical aid, and
           place a safety marker at an appropriate distance behind the vehicles. If there
           are no serious injuries or deaths, and if vehicles remain operable, after
           marking the position of vehicles at the time of the incident, please move
           vehicle to the side of the road to ensure safety of persons and vehicles at the
           scene.
II.        When calling “110,” clearly state the location and time of the accident,
           vehicles involved, and whether there are injuries. The caller should also
           provide their name, address, contact phone number, etc. and then wait for the
           arrival of police officers.
III.       Criminal liability for the individual causing a traffic incident can be reduced if
           this person personally calls to report the traffic accident.
IV.        Persons involved in a traffic incident may go to the “accident handling
           section” of the traffic police department after 30 days have passed to
           inquire about assessments decisions of police regarding the case.
V.         Persons involved in traffic accidents may first mediate between themselves for
           compensation settlement if the accident only cased damage to vehicles or
           possessions, or when if there are only slight injuries. They may also seek
           assistance from their insurance firms. If no settlement can be reached, they
           may consider taking the case to the arbitration committee at the district
           administration of local government for mediation. Another option is to pursue
           civil litigation at a district court. (Traffic accidents like this fall within the
           category of civil affairs, and police are prohibited by law from intervening).
VI.        When there are people injured in traffic accidents, those involved have six
           months within which they may go to the criminal investigation division of the
           police department or the prosecutors’ office of the district court with
           jurisdiction over the area where the accident took place to request
           investigation. In cases involving serious injury or death, investigation is
           automatically initiated by the police.
