FWPD says in a Facebook post that they can no longer respond to property damage accidents where no injuries are reported. They say they will still report to any crashes where someone is hurt or where a car is stuck or disabled.

If you are involved in a crash with no injuries, they say to pull off of the road to a safe location, exchange drivers licenses, insurance information and phone numbers.
