Why do I have to fill out a driver report?

It's the law!

In motor vehicle crashes where the damage is less than a certain dollar amount, no apparent significant injuries occurred, and police or local law enforcement jurisdiction did not investigate, Alaska developed the driver report (Form 12-209) to provide the user a way to self-report a crash and provide documentation to his or her insurance company.
