A All of the above answers

If you are convicted of a hit-and-run accident, you will go to jail for 180 days, have to pay a fine of $2,500-$5,000, or both. In addition, your license will be suspended for one year. And that's just for a first offense! For a second offense, you will face the same jail and fine penalties, and your driver license will be revoked permanently.
