Police chiefs in many Texas cities have agreed to discontinue putting phone numbers of those involved in auto accidents in their incident reports. The decision came after negotiations between Texas departments of public safety and a Committee on Insurance Fraud about ways to stop ambulance chasers. A bill to mandate a 30-day delay in disclosure of accident reports failed in last year’s Texas legislative session. (4/17/08)
