What to do in an accident situation

If you do have an accident, then you must stop. Whilst you may read about people driving away from the scene of an accident, you should always stop and face up to any responsibilities involving yourself.

You should switch off your engine and note that you may need to warn other users; you will have studied about the warning triangle and the distance behind a vehicle it should be placed whilst studying your driving theory.

You will often see that cars switch on their hazard lights when they are involved in some sort of accident and this is generally good practice to adopt.

When it comes to accidents think safety first. Call an ambulance immediately if there is anyone who is injured. Note that if there are any injuries then it is a requirement to report the accident to the police as soon as possible - and within 24 hours.

If there are any witnesses around, then take their details should they say that they are willing to act as a witness. You'll need to swap insurance details with the other party, and write everything down.

There are various notes that you should make in an accident situation, and these are discussed in the next article, 'what details to get at an accident'.
