California Bill Would Allow Personal Vehicle Sharing

Does your car sit unused for long periods of time? A proposed law in California would allow you and your car to be part of a unique car-sharing system.

City CarShare is trying to pioneer personal vehicle sharing, where car owners would make their vehicles available to a pre-screened pool of personal vehicle sharing participants during the periods of the day when their car is not in use, which for many vehicles is upwards of 90 percent of the time.

"The idea is to make it possible for people to participate in car-sharing programs," said Assemblymember Jones. "This is part of a package of approaches that look at ways we can engage insurance companies in a positive way to encourage better environmental behavior."

Thanks, great model

This is a great model, preferable to buying a whole fleet of brand new cars that serve as CarShare cars. People sharing their own pre-existing car is a better way to go, from an enviro. standpoint particularly.
