The Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) has launched a new Web site, www.AccidentTax.com. The site is designed to build public awareness and mobilize opposition to the practice of municipalities charging fees when police or fire department personnel respond to a traffic accident. The site serves as an informational resource on this issue, provides a national perspective, local news and offers an interactive sounding board for those who have been adversely affected by the practice. In addition we have included a grassroots component on the site that allows the public to contact state or local elected officials as well as the media.
