The officers who are investigating Careless Driving Accidents decide who and what caused the accident, or who is most at fault for the accident.
Once the police officer determines which driver is at fault for the driving infraction, the officer will give that driver a traffic ticket under the Highway Traffic Act.
It is up to the officers discretion to give a driver a traffic ticket, they do not have an obligation to do so.
Most times an officer will charge a driver involved in Careless Driving Accidents, but the officer has the right to give whatever charge they feel fits the situation as defined by the Highway Traffic Act.
