Failure to stop at / report accident
The law requires you to stop and report an accident if damage is caused to another vehicle or property, whatever the circumstances. This includes hitting a parked vehicle and driving into and damaging a wall or building.
You can be considered to have failed to stop even if you have stopped, but not provided enough details.
Anyone who fails to stop at the scene of an accident must report it in person to the police within 24 hours. There is no need to report the accident if you stopped and provided details at the time of the incident.
Generally speaking, failing to stop will result in a means-tested fine of up to £2,500 and between five and 10 penalty points. However, the court also has the power to disqualify you from driving, so specialist legal advice is vital to help ensure conviction doesn’t mean losing your licence.
