Should rental car companies be allowed to rent cars that have been recalled?

To many, the answer seems like a no-brainer. But as a California mom named Cally Houck discovered in a tragic way, Enterprise doesn’t agree.  

As ABC News reports, Houck's two daughters were killed in 2004 when the Chrysler PT Cruiser they rented from Enterprise — which was under a safety recall for a known fire hazard — caught fire and crashed into an oncoming semi-tractor trailer.

Enterprise currently opposes legislation that would require rental companies to fix recalled cars before renting them to customers. Houck is launching a petition for Enterprise and other car rental companies to lift that opposition. If car rental companies are allowed to continue to rent recalled cars, she fears that her daughters will become "mere statistics."
