Hit-and-run is fatal. Here in Singapore, there are many crashes every year. There are many cases where the victim died instantly. If you are lucky, you will only suffer minor injuries but you should file a complaint so the driver will not be that careless in the future. Here are some things that you can do to avoid being a victim of hit-and-run:

1.       Tell the driver to pull over

When you collided, the first thing that you should do is ask the other driver to pull over so you can exchange information. Pulling over is important so you will not impede other people. Before going out to talk or make arrangements, make sure to note the license plate of the other.
