Car Accident Aftermath – The Risk of Giving Too Much Information

Have you ever been involved in a car accident and it was mostly your fault?  What did you do? Did you provide personal information to the other party involved? It turns out that drivers are ready and willing to share their personal information in that kind of situation.

From a related survey – almost 40% of drivers are willing to share the number of their driver’s license, with some even permitting the other party to take photos of it. This comes from a feeling that information like that is going to be needed to speed things up when it comes to the insurance claim.
