The driver of a vehicle either directly or indirectly involved in an accident is subject to certain requirements under the Motor Vehicle Act.
The driver is required to remain at, or immediately return to the scene of the accident, render reasonable assistance to injured persons, and provide the following information, in writing, to other parties involved (including witnesses and peace officers):
- Name and address;
- Name and address of vehicle’s registered owner;
- Vehicle licence number; and
- Proof of insurance or financial responsibility (card numbers).
Where the accident results in damage to an unattended vehicle or to property along the highway, the driver must take reasonable steps to locate and notify the owner, in writing, of the above listed information. If (in the case of an unattended vehicle) the owner cannot be located, the driver must leave written notice of this information in a conspicuous location in or on the vehicle.
The driver must report the details of any accident resulting in injury or death to a person, or in property damage apparently exceeding $1,000:
- Within 24 hours, for accidents occurring within a city, city municipality or municipality. Reports must be made to a police officer or designated person of that jurisdiction; and
- Within 48 hours, for accidents occurring outside a city, city municipality or municipality. Reports must be made to the officer or constable of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police stationed nearest to the place where the accident occurred.
If, because of injury or illness, the driver is unable to make the report, it may be made by a passenger of that vehicle.
