A: You can ask the reporting officer or his supervisor to make changes to the accident report. They can ignore you. The report is not an adjudication of anything, and is inadmissible in evidence. It is only the investigating officer's opinion of what happened.

A: In Tennessee, a police report is not typically considered "adjudicated" in the same way that a court case might be. Adjudication refers to the final decision or judgment made by a court in a legal matter. Police reports are documents created by law enforcement to document incidents, and they are not subject to the same legal process as court cases.
