The Basics of an Ontario Auto Policy - What You Need to Know

It goes without saying that no one wants to be injured in a car, truck or pedestrian accident. If you are, however, does your auto insurance policy provide sufficient coverage? When Ontario drivers buy auto insurance, they often do not know what types of coverage they are buying. Moreover, they often do not know how the coverage works. One reason is due to the fact that drivers who buy auto insurance are usually first time car owners and have never had to buy auto insurance before. This article will break down the basics of a standard auto insurance policy.

Ontario Fatal Auto Accidents & Auto Occupant/Pedestrian Fatalities - A Comparison of 2014 and 2015

Should you call the police after a car accident in Kingston, Ottawa or Whitby?

When Ontario drivers and passengers are involved in car or truck accidents, they may think about not calling the police to report the accidents. However, not calling the police may be a mistake.

In fact, Ontario law sets forth reporting requirements for when drivers need to report motor vehicle accidents.

Ottawa Car Accidents - When and Where Accidents are Mostly Likely to Occur

Accidents happen every day across cities in Ontario, such as Ottawa, Kingston and Whitby. Many Ontario cities have programs dedicated to making roads safer for their drivers.

The program is a partnership between Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Paramedic Service, Ottawa Police Service, Ottawa Public Health and the Public Works Department.
