What happens when you rear end a vehicle but the only damage done is to your car and no one is hurt?

In Ontario, if you rear end another vehicle, you can get a

carless driving charge. You may also get a following to closley

charge, however, according the highway traffic act and officer

actually has to witness that you were following too closely, so

your likely to win if you fight that one. You also want to notify

your insurance company right away. Although the person you hit says

there O.K, they can still turn around and sue you should they

suddenly feel "neck pains" or "whiplash". They can also make a

claim that there is damage to the frame or other systems of the car

that went un-seen at the time of the accident.
