What is failure to stop at an accident?

If a driver is involved in a road traffic accident, they are legally obligated to stop their vehicle at the scene, regardless of whether the accident resulted in damage to persons or property. Failure to stop is a criminal offence.

If the accident results in injury, death, or damage to another vehicle or property, the driver must also provide their name and address, the vehicle's registration number, and the owner's name and address to anyone with reasonable grounds for requesting this information (e.g., the other driver, the police, or anyone directly involved in the accident).

Do I always have to report an accident?

If you are unable to exchange details at the scene of the accident, you must report the accident to the police within 24 hours.

What are the penalties for failing to stop or report an accident?

The penalties for failure to stop or report an accident can be severe. If convicted, you may face a fine, penalty points on your driving license, and, in some cases, disqualification from driving. The severity of the penalties can vary depending on the circumstances of the accident, such as whether it involved injury or death.
