Fail To Remain Charge

Drivers who are involved in a motor vehicle accident in Ontario are required by the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario to do four things:

  • Remain at the scene or immediately return to the scene.
  • Render all possible assistance
  • Upon request, give in writing to anyone sustaining loss or injury or to any police office name, address, driver’s licence number and jurisdiction of issuance, insurance details, name and address of registered owner.
  • If more than $1000.00 dollars damage or personal injury or damage to the highway, the accident must be reported to the police forthwith.


  • A fine of not less than $400.00 dollars and not more than $2000.00 dollars;
  • Imprisonment for a term of not more than 6 months or both.
  • 7 demerit points
  • Possible licence suspension for up to 2 years;
  • Substantial insurance rate increase

Note: There is no requirement that the accused failed to remain at the scene to avoid civil or criminal responsibility to make out this charge as there is in s. 252 of the Criminal Code charge.
