Calif., Colorado Consider Banning ‘Crash Taxes’

Denver Car InsuranceLegislators in both California and Colorado have proposed new laws that would prohibit communities from charging a fee when police and fire personnel respond to motor vehicle accidents.

The city of Sacramento recently adopted just such a “fire recovery charge” on out of town automobile drivers. Sacramento’s “crash tax” imposes a fee on out-of-town drivers who get into auto accidents in order to fund the fire department’s response services. The fee would be imposed on non-resident drivers if insurers find them at fault in the accident. But business owners who live outside the city but have property inside the city are exempt from the tax.
