There have been multiple cases of hit-and-run incidents reported in Zimbabwe. These incidents involve drivers who flee the scene after colliding with pedestrians, motorcycles, or other vehicles. Some drivers flee the scene due to fear of legal consequences, lack of documentation, or being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Fleeing makes it hard for victims or witnesses to report them. Such an act is illegal, and charges can be severe, especially if injuries or death result. Drivers are required to stay, provide aid, and cooperate with authorities.
