Who pays the fine of cars a rental or of car sharing? From now on customers will do it as expected of the reform of the Highway Code, inserted in Infrastructure Decree voted to Room. The rental car fines under the reform are now exclusively at the expense of the customers of the company and car-sharing companies.
In fact, currently the legislation provided that fines they came to businesses who then passed them on to customers, who often and willingly did appeal not paying the sanction, which at this point remained charged to the companies.
Fine car hire
The fine following an offense committed at the wheel of a rental car or car sharing is notified to the company, which then turns to the driver who was caught inside fragrant. But if the latter refuses, the sanction remains with the company.
Considered that about the 90% of violations it is not immediately contestable to the driver of the vehicle, the number of disputes and appeals has increased considerably.
With the reform of the Highway Code the customer will pay the fine directly, with companies that will limit themselves only to providing the details of the underwriter of the lease, as required by the Code, so that the latter is notified of the minutes.
Highway Code Reform
The Infrastructure Decree with the amendments to the Highway Code, before being effectively operational, has yet to overcome the obstacle of Senate. In any case, the rule goes to clarify a phenomenon it has penalized rental companies, especially in the months of the pandemic.
“In the last 20 months of the pandemic – he has declared Massimiliano Archiapatti, President of ANIASA – many local administrations, for reasons related to their own bureaucratic inefficiency, have directly notified the rental companies of fines and massive enforcement actions, even concerning the last 5 years, without asking in advance to know the data of the actual offender.
An erroneous practice that risks depriving drivers of responsibility, induced to think that they can not comply with traffic safety regulations and avoid penalties, aggravating the costs of rental companies ”.
