QUESTION:

What is the FR-10 form the officer gave me at the scene?

AND THE ANSWER IS:

The FR-10, Insurance Verification Form, or green form, is a cursory report created at the scene by the officer setting forth the basic details of the accident.  This includes such things as the names of the drivers and owners of the involved vehicles, along with their insurance information.  Of special note is the section under each vehicle that indicates whether or not that driver contributed to the accident.  See what is circled, and that will give you the officer’s impression of who was at fault.  This is not final and not binding on you or the other driver; it’s just his impression based on what he found at the scene and what he was told.
