A: The restricted road sign is the least of your worries. The big problem is the leaving the scene of an accident charge. Because even if no damage existed to your vehicle it does not mean that no damage was on the lighter Vehicle simple physics tells you that. A leaving the scene of an accident charge carries up to 30 days in jail and a mandatory 6 months loss of license. Get yourself a good lawyer immediately as you should not be speaking to the police without a good lawyer on your side.
