What you have to do if you are involved in a road accident while driving a motor vehicle or riding a bicycle.
If you are involved in a road traffic accident, you are required to stop immediately and secure the accident site. If you do not do so, or leave the scene of the accident, you are failing to meet your legal obligations. If you fail to stop following an accident in which people have been injured, you are committing an offence. In both cases, you are liable to prosecution.
