A driver is involved in a car accident with another vehicle. This driver rear-ended the other vehicle on a public street and is 100% at fault. The at fault driver pays for the other vehicle's repairs but does not want to repair his own vehicle - it's an old vehicle and it's not worth it to him. No reports are filed with insurance companies or the police. He continues to drive his vehicle everyday.

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?"

Thanks!

Your third question answered your first two questions and the third is six months.
