Accident

What should you do if you’re in an accident with your snowmobile or ATV? Do you always need to call the authorities and emergency services. It all depends.

Has someone been injured? Call the competent authorities

You’re in an accident and there are injuries. In this case, call for help. And above all, stay calm.

Dealing with a fender bender

You’re in an accident and there are no injuries. Take out the Joint Report and fill it out with the other driver.

Don’t have a copy of the Joint Report? Don’t panic! Write down the contact information for the other driver on a piece of paper: name, address, telephone number, driver’s licence number, registration certificate and proof of insurance.
