LOL, kind of like you can buy bullets without a waiting period, but not the gun.
We don't need gun control, we need bullet control, as Chris Rock would say. "Every bullet should cost $5000. That way there wouldn't be any innocent bystanders."
Heheh, back on topic. I'm not sure how this is in all states, but for the most part, car rental companies try to pressure you into purchasing their "insurance" coverage for their cars.
Now if you already have your own auto insurance, chances are, you are already covered, and paying for extra "insurance" with the rental company is a waste of money. Some insurance companies offer special rental car coverage, but in California at least, it is sufficient enough to have the usual required liability and medical coverage along with the optional Comprehesive coverage.
But in this case, if something happens, you are then liable just as if it were your own car, so it depends on what your Comprehesive coverage is.
