A hit-and-run legal penalty for a car accident?Think if no one gets hurt, leave the scene, do you touch the law?


Today’s question about road traffic @issue is about “how to identify the illegal elements of a hit-and-run after driving a car on the road and riding a locomotive in a car accident?”Does it take the law to leave the scene casually when you identify as a non-perpetrator?

According to the judgment of judicial practice, “the legislative intent of the crime of hit-and-run is to punish the motorists who escape after the accident, so as to maintain traffic safety, strengthen the rescue, reduce the death and injury of the victims, and promote the immediate rescue of the victims or other necessary measures after the accident, so as to reduce the unnecessary casualties caused by the delay Therefore, the establishment of the crime only with the perpetrator has the driving force of the vehicle accident, causing death and injury and escape of the fact that the perpetrator has no fault about the accident and the reasons for his departure, it is not asked.”In other words, as long as there is a car accident, whether or not they have responsibility for the accident, they have to stay at the scene and send the injured to medical care, otherwise it may constitute a crime.”

However, the frequent controversy is that no one was injured or killed after the crash, at which point the crash driving away is a hit-and-run?
