So, I'm curious if anyone can answer this for me on here. Just how much time can elapse between an accident and giving a statement (obligation of the highway traffic act)? I keep seeing this happening on this site, and I'm curious if it's being swept under the rug, or if people are actually allowed to leave the scene before police show up.
