"S. 1130 seeks to put a halt to an absurd aberration in our legal system. Under the liability laws of a small number of States, companies that rent or lease motor vehicles are held strictly liable if their renters or leasers are negligent or cause an accident. The company does not have to be negligent in any way. The vehicle may operate perfectly, be maintained properly, and still be the occasion of the liability of the company. These States simply hold the company liable because of their ownership of the vehicle. This has been true even if the car has been used by an unauthorized driver"--Page 1
