It's been said that most auto accidents take place within one mile of either your departure or destination site. What’s more, dozens of auto accidents take place within just a few hundred feet of the rental company's rental car lot. We’ve all done it—hopped in the vehicle, started it up, and headed out into a strange new place without so much as a second thought about safety. The worst part?
