A ticket for fail to remain:
Fail to Remain at a Scene of an Accident Drivers who fail to remain at the scene of the accident, or “Hit and Run” accidents fall into two difference categories under Canadian Law. Depending upon the situation, the police can either charge the driver under the Criminal Code of Canada for the offence of “Fail to Stop at the Scene of the Accident”, or under the Highway Traffic Act of Ontario for “Fail to Remain at the scene of the accident”. Fail to Remain at the scene of an accident under the Highway Traffic Act is a traffic ticket, or Provincial Statue offence ( an offence under the provincial laws of Ontario) and Fail to Stop at the Scene of an Accident is a Federal Criminal Code offence, under the Criminal Code of Canada.
