Failing to stop
According to the Canadian Criminal Code and Highway Traffic Act, anyone who operates a means of transport and commits an offense, such as failing to stop, without a plausible reason for not stopping the transport, and yet injured someone, can be defendant of the case.
A case of failing to stop can order a person to pay a fine of up to $ 1,000. Also, this conviction will remain on your record for three years, according to the traffic code.
Depending on the severity of the accident, caused by failing to stop, the Court will assess the circumstances and determine whether your case falls under the penal code as well. The type of legal consequences can be a suspension of license, fines, jail, among others.
