Q. A friend wants to drive the motor vehicle I rented from “2MJ” – is it okay for them to …“take it for a spin”…. and drive it too?
A. No. Absolutely not!!! Only you (the renter) are permitted to drive the motor vehicle. If you do not follow this guideline and something happens such as an accident, you are pulled-over by a traffic enforcement officer or police officer then you are the one fully responsible for your friend’s actions and any penalties that may follow.
