No matter who is to blame, don’t just drive off. Make sure that all vehicles involved in the accident move to the side of the road so that you can deal with the accident together. In this way, you also divert the traffic and do not risk being hit by other cars.

Oh, and don’t forget your hazard lights guys! Turn it on so the vehicles behind you know that your vehicle is a traffic hazard and they can actively avoid your car.

Even if you get out of the car to assess the damage or discuss the accident, do not leave your valuables or car keys in the vehicle or the ignition switch, as these items can be stolen, especially in hot situations or during a riot at the scene of the accident.
