Accident Tax
Fighting Accident Response Fees - Local Governments Capitalizing on Motorist Misfortune

The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) is a vocal opponent of municipalities charging accident response fees when police or fire department personnel respond to a traffic accident. To help educate the public about this practice PCI has released a new video.

As citizens, we pay for emergency services through our property and other local taxes. These fees for basic emergency services are just another way for local government to impose a new hidden tax we call the Accident Tax. If your local government is considering charging an accident response fee or already has one in place, visit www.acci or to see how other communities are responding and how you can fight back.
