CAR ACCIDENT TIPS



If you are involved in a traffic collision, try to remain calm. The calmer you are, the better prepared you will be to handle the situation. Here are some things to do after a car accident:




MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS OK



Make sure no one in the car is injured. Next, check on the passengers in the other vehicle; make sure that no pedestrians are hurt. If not, call 993.


KEEP SAFETY FIRST



If it's not safe to get out of your car — keep your seatbelt fastened, turn on your hazard lights, then call Najm (920000560) if there is no injured party and at least one of the parties who are involved in the accident has an active insurance policy, otherwise call traffic police 993 and wait for help to arrive. If the collision seems to be minor, turn off your engine and set out cones, flares or warning triangles if possible.




STAY AT THE SCENE



Leaving the scene can cause additional violations and fines.
