Consequences You Cannot Take Lightly
Leaving the scene of an accident that does not involve injury results in the addition of two points to your record and possible surcharges. A single offense may not seem like a big deal, but it can cause complications in your life that make it worth dealing with now. For instance:
- Even a single offense can result in insurance eligibility points and an increase in your premiums.
- A violation can lead to jail time.
- If you already have points on your record, it could result in additional surcharges, probation or even license suspension.
- The points could enhance the consequences of future traffic tickets.
What happens if someone was injured in the accident, whether the person reported the injuries immediately or later? Injuries suffered by another driver, passenger or anyone else involved automatically makes leaving the scene an eight-point traffic offense with thousands of dollars in surcharges and license suspension. In addition, you could face criminal charges, depending on the severity of the injuries.
