I had a new car on hire last week with only a couple of hundred kms on the clock. It was left hand drive (wasn't on holiday or anything, just fancied trying a LHD car for a week )
When we picked it up, the hire car lady walked around the entire car twice pointing out that the car was new with no dents or scratches and no damage to any of the wheels. Half an hour later, when we were going through a little village with narrow streets, I misjudged the distance on the nearside and gave both wheels a hefty scrape along the kerb.
When I returned it yesterday, I was expecting a bill for the damage to the wheels but the guy just walked around the car, said nothing about the wheels and gave me a receipt with "sin danos" written in the damage section. Phew, that was a bit of luck I thought!
