The Richmond County Sheriff's office will be handling fender benders differently.
If you get into a car accident on private property, deputies will now issue an SR-13 form to the drivers involved. Lieutenant Calvin Chew says they're adopting this policy to align themselves with other large state agencies.
He says it's an effort to better utilize deputies time.
Because of the policy change, law enforcement presence is only required if there is an injury, damage exceeds $500, or the accident occurs on a state road.
