Hertz puts cameras in its rental cars

I agree, Hertz owns the cars. But in this country, right or wrong, ownership of property doesn't give you carte blanche control over the property or the green light to violate the law. I own land, can I do anything I want to the land... because you know, I own it? Also, I would say that renting a vehicle does not constitute consent to be video recorded. Many states require two-party consent to record. If I rent in Nevada where there is one-party consent, and drive into California where it requires two-party consent, now Hertz has potentially violated the law.

I wonder if there's something buried in the rental contracts about recording.... you know, the ones no one ever reads as they sign?

I'm not sure why they'd like to look *inside* the car.

I can think of a couple of reasons off the top of my head:

1.) Check to see if the renter was doing anything illegal (like clambacking or drinking) and whether that may or may not have played a part in an accident.

2.) Check to see if the renters are doing anything to damage the interior of the car.

Not saying this is justifable, but a reason why they'd want to film interior.

I'm sure it is in the contract. But you can just revoke consent after you drive off in the car. Signing a rental agreement doesn't mean you have waived your right to giving or revoking your consent to be recorded. However, that might mean that Hertz wishes to terminate the contract. Most cases that would be unlikely, I think.

The right to privacy is usually fairly well protected in cases like this, and it is possible that it is protected even if consent is part of the contract. It differs by location, but in MN it is illegal for your landlord to show up at your residence without reasonable notice, even if it is in the rental agreement, unless there is an immediate need that will cause personal danger or property damage.

I would suggest this. Less residue, and a quality manufacturer.

Ahh, Electrical -- the king of tape. Duck Tape (accurate, because it is made from cotton duck, and is not effective in sealing ducts) is a poor substitute. It is a rusty saw, when what you need is a scalpel. And that scalpel is Electrical Tape.

Clambacking? I am not familiar with this term.
