According to the New York Times, California lawmakers are working to enact a bill that would force rental car companies to pull recalled vehicles off the road. Wait, rental car companies are not doing this already? No, apparently it literally takes an act of Congress to force some of our country’s largest rental car companies to treat their customers fairly and to care for their safety. It is currently illegal for car dealerships to sell recalled vehicles, why should car rentals be any different.
When renting a car, be sure to verify with the rental agent that the vehicle you are renting isn’t subject to any recalls. If you or someone that you know suffers an injury in an auto accident, be sure to contact someone that cares about your rights and safety, like the Car Accident Attorneys of Rutter Mills.
