What to do if you have a collision

If you are involved in a collision:

  • Do not stop in a live traffic lane
  • Move to a safe place to exchange details. This could be a hard shoulder, emergency area or lay-by
  • Give your and the vehicle owner’s name and address, as well as the registration number of the vehicle, to anyone having reasonable grounds for requiring them
  • If you don't give your details at the time of the collision, report it to the police as soon as reasonably practical, and in any case within 24 hours
