What applies if you have been involved in an accident, but are certain you were not at fault?

If you have been involved in a traffic accident, you must always remain at the scene of the accident – even if you are certain you were not at fault – and try to help anyone who has been injured or is otherwise in need of help.

If anyone else involved in the accident request it, you are also required to provide your name and address, as well as details about the incident. However, you should not try to settle the issue of who's at fault on site, let the insurance companies work that out afterwards.

You must always remain at the scene of the accident until rescue personnel have arrived and you have provided all the information requested.

Not remaining at the scene of an accident, or leaving it too soon, is a criminal offence which can lead to imprisonment, fines and a revoked driver's licence. The more serious the accident, the more serious the penalty is.
