Safe Rental Cars

CGL, working on behalf of Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety (CARS), an auto safety group based in California, led the lobbying effort to enact the “Raechel and Jacqueline Houck Safe Rental Car Act,” which prohibits rental car companies from renting or selling vehicles in their fleets that are subject to a safety recall until the vehicles have been fixed. In 2004, Raechel and Jacqueline Houck were killed when their rental car lost its steering, causing them to run head-on into a tractor-trailer. The car was under a safety recall for the steering defect, but had not been repaired. The Safe Rental Car Act is the first significant expansion of the federal auto recall system in 40 years.  The law went into effect on June 1, 2016.
