Carrollton PD 07:54 pm: Texas Transportation Code 550.022  requires drivers involved in a minor accident to move their cars from the roadway if possible.

{Carrollton PD states that even if there is a dispute between drivers as to cause of accident the cars need to be moved: good question.  “Damage to the cars is not going to disappear and officers simply notate statements and damage and let insurance providers decide what to do.” }
