Would You Share Your Car With A Stranger?

Spride Share is betting that Californians will, and a new bill signed into law by Gov. Schwarzenegger sorts out the insurance issues if they do so.

Sharing would happen within a member network of people who are screened by Spride Share, which is rolling out the service in the San Francisco Bay Area starting today.

Ariel Schwarz writes, "Vehicle owners have to install a piece of hardware (the "car sharing device") that gives access, tracks mileage, records access times, and makes sure the car is working correctly. And if the car gets in an accident, Spride Share provides supplemental insurance that covers the vehicle owner, the car, and the person renting the car at the time of the incident."
