Enterprise's statement on car safety is pure spin

Feb 23, 2012 — While Enterprise's announcement today is a step in the right direction, what is more revealing is what Enterprise did not say. The question remains: ‘Yes or no, will Enterprise support specific legislative language endorsed by Hertz, consumers, and 130,000 other people?’ Anything less than yes would make today’s announcement pure spin.

Enterprise makes no promise to ground all cars that are under a recall. Nor do they state they will support the agreement reached between Hertz and Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety.

As my family learned tragically, a small defect can cause enormous problems. The same thing is true of laws. If Enterprise supports federal legislation, but that legislation is full of loopholes, what really would have changed?

This campaign is not simply about my family's tragedy, and we will continue to press onward until Enterprise announces full and unconditional support for the Hertz agreement.
