If the car owner receives a ticket (speeding, parking, toll fees) from the rental period, the owner will need to transfer liability to the driver. On the back of many tickets, there is a “Transfer Liability” option; the owner simply needs to fill in the driver’s information. The rental contract has all the necessary information; the ticket and the rental contract should be mailed to the address provided.
Certain areas do not have the option to transfer liability (Chicago, D.C., VA, MD et al). In this case, car owner should pay the ticket and submit ticket photos (front and back) and receipt, along with the driver name and rental dates. If the driver fails to pay the owner directly, we will start the claims process. If HyreCar charges the driver for the ticket fees, then there is an additional admin fee of $10 on the driver. Only when funds are redeemed irrecoverable will HyreCar backstop charges; HyreCar does not reimburse for late fees.
