So if the unfortunate happens, what should you do?

  • Stop the car – failure to stop if involved in an RTA is a criminal offence
  • Switch off your engine and put on your hazard warning lights
  • Check yourself and your passengers for injuries – Call an ambulance if need be
  • Make sure it’s safe before getting out of your vehicle
  • If other vehicles are involved, make sure it’s safe before checking on them
  • If there are injuries then the police should be called by dialling 999
  • If it’s a minor incident, exchange your details with the other driver. You want their name, address, contact number and if they have it, their insurance details.
  • Take note of the other vehicle’s registration, make, model and colour
  • If you can take photos of any damage to both vehicles as evidence in case of a dispute
