“Hit and run” offences are not just committed by desperate criminals. For example, parking lot accidents involving parked vehicles, and vehicles operated by drivers who seem to be very pleasant people, are frequent events. People will do quite a bit of damage in a parking lot, and just leave. This is an offence. The law requires in these circumstances that the driver:
1. Provide to the person in charge of, or the owner of, the parked vehicle, all reasonable contact and registration information, in writing, or
2. Leave the necessary information in a conspicuous place in or on the vehicle collided with.
