If you think it is a good idea to leave the scene of an accident, think again. Not only are you in for a large amount of head ache when they do come to your door, it might not even be possible. That is what one Florida resident learned when he car called the authorities after it had been involved in a traffic accident.
Police in the city of Port St. Lucie were altered to the accident when the Ford’s Emergency Assistance notified them to the accident.
The safety feature activates when sensors on the car detect a sudden change of speed or movement. The call is automatically placed with emergency services and GPS data is then submitted giving response crews an exact location where the accident took place to further speed up rescue efforts.
Police released a recording of the incident in which the driver of the vehicle attempted to convince dispatchers that nothing had occurred. When asked what took place the driver responded: “Ma’am, there’s no problem. Everything was fine.”
Depending on what the laws in Florida look like they may wish they would have hung around.
