Hey guys

So i was driving behind a Van, the signal was green and as soon as it turned yellow, the van hit the breaks Hard. I tried stopping/hand braking nothing seemed to work, it was raining, thus i rear ended his van. There was no damage, unluckily the cop was in the area and handed me a Motor Vehicle Accident Report. He didn't indicate who's fault it was, and didn't issue either of us a ticket. So my question is what does Motor Vehicle Accident Report affect? Insurance company? driving licence? etc..

Thanks alot.

Even if the police don’t lay charges, insurance companies have their own fault determination rules for accidents. In your example when you strike someone from behind, regardless of circumstances, you’re 100% at fault. If no charges were laid, there won’t be any record of the accident on your licence, but you will have an at fault finding on your insurance record. It could impact your insurance rates upon renewal depending on your policy and record.

I really think it all about certain circumstances for example on a highway i can go infront of the truck and press brakes, knowing that trucks stop really slow and he could hit me and it wouldn't be my fault.

Insurance fault rules are pretty much absolute. If it meets their model, they apply fault as prescribed in the regulation. They don't look at factors like weather and road conditions that police might.

Here's a PDF of the fault rules: http://www.ibc.ca/en/car_insurance/docu ... -rules.pdf
