Traffic Accidents in the Australian Capital Territory

The main laws that deal with traffic accidents in the Australian Capital Territory are the  Road Transport (Safety & Traffic Management) Act 1999 (the Act) the Road Transport (Safety and Traffic Management) Regulation 2000 and the Australian Road Rules. The Act defines a traffic accident as including not only a collision or accident between vehicles, but also one that is between a vehicle and an animal in which a person dies or is injured, property is damaged, or an animal in someone’s care is injured or dies.

All drivers involved in a traffic accident are required to stop immediately and stay for as long as it takes for them to comply with all of their obligations.
