Tight budgets for county or city municipalities, the last few years, caused some to seek reimbursement for emergency services provided by police, fire, and other emergency response services at the scene of a traffic accident.

These municipalities would often request reimbursement from the at-fault driver, an insurer, or any other person for any costs or expenses of police, fire, emergency responder services, personnel, supplies, motor vehicles and equipment in responding to a car accident or in the investigation, cleanup or accident report preparation.

As of July 20, 2011, the State of Arizona now prohibits these municipalities from charging for services either directly or indirectly at the scene an accident.

The municipality can charge a fee for liability under certain conditions.  One would be if you damage city property.  Another would be for ambulance services provided by the city or town.  And of course, if you do something that violates the Stupid Motorist Law such as drive into a flooded wash.

There are several other instances where the city can charge you so you may want to check out the bill H2003 (Chapter 82)
