Failing to Remain at the Scene

We at X-Copper have successfully represented thousands of people just like you, who have been charged with failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

Failing to remain is one of the most serious charges in the Highway Traffic Act. The statute says that anyone involved in an accident must remain at, or return immediately to the scene, and render all possible assistance. You are also required to provide any person(s) involved with the following information:

  • Name and address
  • Driver's Licence number and jurisdiction
  • The vehicle's insurer and policy number
  • the name and address of the registered owner of the vehicle
  • permit number

If you refuse to provide this information, you could also be found guilty of failing to remain. This charge is considered to be extremely serious, and the penalties reflect that:

  • A fine of between $400-$2000
  • Seven demerit points
  • Possible suspension of your driver's licence for up to two years
  • Possible jail time of up to six months

A failing to remain conviction will stay on your driver's abstract for three years. If you are able to find a company to insure you again, your premiums could be thousands of dollars more per year.
