The damages in this example do NOT hinder the functionality of the vehicle, they are merely cosmetic in nature. However, the damages DO exceed $1000 in repair costs. There were no injuries.
Just a few questions:
- Can the police pull over the at fault driver if his vehicle has these above damages? If so, what charges can be laid?
- Is it at all possible for the NOT at fault driver to be charged with anything?
- What is the statute of limitations for the offence of "Failing to report a collision to a police officer?"
