I hate this question! To begin with, DMV.org is an unofficial informational website not sponsored by any DMV. I guessed that from the URL, and it says so on its homepage. The website does have a “Post-Accident Checklist” that says, under “Protect Your Identity!”: “DO NOT provide your address or contact information to other drivers, passengers, or witnesses.” I can understand the rationale for this advice. But DMV.org also has an Accident Guide for each state. Pennsylvania’s says: “Exchange names, addresses, phone numbers, driver's license numbers, tag numbers, and insurance information with all drivers involved.” Then it points to a form on the official PennDOT website, which asks for the name and address of the other driver. So the question is literally correct, but extremely misleading.

2K: ATA

3K: 50/50 would leave badger & hedgehog, & badgers just aren't cute enough to be called urchins, even by the English.

5K: I thought you should do all those. 50/50, but unless +1 really knows, I'm sunk. My choice would have been B, unless you're a doctor or its obvious.

I also mislead myself by misreading Q. You are supposed to exchange insurance info, not personal I D.

Maybe +1 points this out to me.

I thought you were supposed to exchange insurance information, not addresses.
