Scarier and scarier... let's hope that doesn't catch on over here. Dare I say, I think a new "rage" would be branded fairly shortly afterwards if it did - Rentacar Rage!! :fmad: :fmad:

At least the local gov stepped in and sorted them out... not so sure our governments would do the same. If they could tax it, then they would approve it, plain and simple ... grrrrrr....

Year I just read that. What bloody wankers, no one apart from the Police has any right do such a thing and far as I'm concerned that rental company should have the recievers called on them. :( :( :( :( :( :(
