Worse thing that ever happened to me in a rental car is I got a ticket for having an expired license tab. Took about a year to get that straightened out.

Maybe they just give you the gun with the car, since Florida is NOT a very safe place to be a tourist.

Florida is safe for tourists now. You are thinking of a number of years ago.

I got a ticket in the mail once from the City of Chicago for a parking violation on a rental car. I looked at the date on the ticket and checked my travel records and it was from 2 days after I left Chicago.

I ripped it up and threw it away and assume that Hertz ended up paying the ticket.

Yea, I know.

Back then you had liberal Democrat Lawton Chiles.

But when International Tourists started turning up in body bags, he made Giuliani look like a wimp - basically EVERY black in the state was assumed guilty and frisked, the moment they were seen in public. Pretty much ended the crime wave...but few took notice.

I remember a political cartoon from back then. It showed a crime scene with a couple of feet sticking out of the blanket (i.e., a body). One cop then says to another: “don’t worry, it’s a local”.

I wonder how the Chicago police got your address. I wondered how the L.A. police got my address. How do you go from a license plate to an home address in another state? Obviously the rental company ratted us out out.

Did the rental company actually think I was going to pay a ticket for their expired license tab?

Tampa?

Lady, the gun comes WITH THE CAR.

In Miami the rental cars come with TEC-9s.

"Always check for drugs. It’s hell to get arrested for somebody else’s dope."

HA...reminds me...in about 1980-81 I was travelling a bit, and needed a bigger bag...my boyfriend at the time offered to lend me one...so, I took my business trip to Alaska and back. When home, I cleaned the bag out and found a stash of marijuana that he'd had in there...I was SOOOOO pissed. I never smoked the stuff, and didn't know he was...he claimed he wasn't, and that it was old. Shortly thereafter, I dumped him.

Neither do I and my grandchildren would have either known not to touch it or how to handle it if they’d found it.

It could have slid out from under my seat and into the back seat, and she could have picked it up and either one of us could have got shot," Linda Ashmore exclaimed.

Or you could have been driving your rental car in the outback, had a flat tire and a dingo could have eaten your baby.

Rye whiskey, rye whiskey, rye whiskey I cry, if a tree don't fall on me I'll live 'til I die.

Around here they auction off cars that have been seized because of drugs and one guy bought a truck and found a huge stash of marijuana that they missed.

I just today, took my two kids out in the drive way, one at a time, locked them in the trunk of the car, one at a time - after showing them the escape latch. They were outta there in nothing flat.

A good thing for kids to know about too.

Older cars however, may not have one.

They didn't. Hertz sent it to me. I just blew it off.

But years ago, I did get a parking ticket in the mail from the city of Philadelphia ( I live in Western PA), and neither me or any of my cars had been in Philly for years.

It turned out the corrupt bastards in that corrupt city just sent out parking tickets at random to anyone with a licensed vehicle in the State of Pennsylvania.

I never paid that ticket either, and eventually the state smacked them down for their scam after they hit a couple of politically connected folks.

I got mine from the city of San Diego (now that I think about it, not L.A.)

They kept sending me threatening letters and I just forward them to the rental company. After about a year they stopped.

Maybe I shouldn’t to to California anymore. I might owe then a $billion by now.

“I wonder how the Chicago police got your address. I wondered how the L.A. police got my address.”

The very first organized surveillance of American citizens started with driver’s licenses.

Now there is a national database.

The ticket was under the windshield wiper. I gave it to the clerk when I turned the car in. The first letter appeared at my house the next week.
