- The driver is always required to stop either at the scene of the accident or, if that is not safe, as close as safely possible.
- If the accident results in bodily or property damage each driver is required to provide the other drivers with their name, address, and the registration number of their vehicle. They must also provide their license to the other drivers if asked. Additionally, if someone was injured in the crash the others involved must provide him or her with reasonable assistance in traveling to medical assistance.
- In the event that there is no other driver available to give the above-mentioned information to, then this information must be given to the nearest police officer.
- Anyone involved in an accident with property where the owner is not present, they must leave a note, securely and in plain sight with the driver's contact information. The driver must also notify the nearest police officer or law enforcement agency of the crash.
