Question asked on Dec. 18, 2020
Q: Me and my husband are married he has taken my car without permission. He has been gone with my car for three days. The car is a rental car and I am the only driver that can drive the car. He also has no DL.
A: If you are the only party on the rental, then the car is your responsibility. The decision to charge for theft belongs to the D.A., but as a matter of civil responsibility, you could be held liable if you “permitted” an unlicensed driver to take the car and did nothing to try to report it. You should probably tell the rental agency that the car has been taken by your husband without your permission, and it will be up to them to decide what to do about it.
