In Ontario, if you are involved in an accident with your vehicle, the law states that you must report the incident if the damage is greater than $1000.00. If the damage is under $1000.00 it is not deemed necessary to report that accident. The issue with not reporting an accident that you believe is under $1000.00 in damages is that it is very difficult to determine the cost of damage at the time of the accident. Colliding with another vehicle alone may not always be the case. Damages to a vehicle and highway property may result also. Therefore, collisions should be reported within 24 hours of the incident to the police.
