I Re-wrote Instructions for ‘What to do After an Accident’

After a collision your mind is a mess, when it needs to be laser-focused.

The objective is to gather as much information as possible. Past advice suggests sketching and jotting notes, but instead, I say use your phone to document. The following is a set of instructions.

Print this list & stuff into glovebox:

– turn on “Location Services” so GPS coordinates will be attached to all photos
– photo EVERYthing, take like 100+ photos
– along with a 360º of the damage, photograph drivers’ licence and plates, tires, external conditions
video witnesses, video interactions with the other driver
– use the voice record app while you walk around, narrating what you see

I hope you never have to use this list.

Read it online at Autonet.

Favourite line: 

The second last paragraph, the list of external conditions to take note of.
