Person A: Owns a Corvette, which is fully insured, is currently on six months probation for a D.U.I., and is permitted to drive only to and from work.

Person B: Is a friend of person A, doesn't have a driver's license, doesn't have a car.

If person A rents a Mercedes under his/her name and allows person B to drive the Mercedes, what are the repercussions for both parties if person B is involved in an accident - assuming Person A didn't know person B didn't have a license? What if person B was merely pulled over without a license? Same situation, but person B is in person A's Corvette -- what are the repercussions?

In each case Person A is an idiot and so is Person B (hypothetically of course) :D
In scenario 1 Idiot B gets ticket and fine and unable to get license for a couple years, while Idiot A is responsible if they tow or impound(that'd be a new one to me) the rental and any damages to it...
Scenario 2, same thing minus the damages
Scenario 3, same thing Idiot B gets the ticket and fine and Idiot A gets his car impounded and will be responsible for the fees

Just your friendly neighborhood DrunkN_MastR tellin ya the way it is, from a scumbag street cop point of view ;)


What if full-coverage insurance was purchased on the rental by person A, wouldn't damages be covered by the insurance?
