Representative Gray introduced Senate Bill 19-090 concerning the operation of peer-to-peer motor vehicle sharing business.  The bill regulates peer-to-peer car sharing, including requiring that the car be insured by the owner, driver, or program and that the insurance that satisfies the required coverage is the primary insurance; requiring that the car sharing programs notify the car owner that sharing the car may violate any lien on the car; authorizing the shared car owner's insurer to exclude coverage when the car in the program gives the insurer a right of contribution for any claims made as a result of car sharing; prohibiting an insurer from denying coverage outside of sharing solely because the car covered on the policy has been made available for sharing unless the car owner fails to provide complete and accurate information; setting recordkeeping requirements; clarifying that the car sharing program and shared car owner are exempt under federal law from vicarious liability based on ownership of the car; authorizing a car sharing program to be the named insured for a shared car; requiring the program to make certain disclosures and provide an emergency telephone number; requiring the program to verify a driver's license and keep records of the verification; making the program responsible for equipment installed on the shared car for sharing purposes; and, when there is a safety recall, requiring the program and the car owner to remove the car from the program until repaired.
