Sharing-Traffic violations regisyered in your name even you do not hold of such car
I like to share some serious but true fact. One of my friend was provided a leased car through car leasing co. by his company. As per the new Traffic rules, leasing companies has to register drivers/employee's civil id in traffic deptt. against issued car.
When my friend reaches renewal of residency, ministry told you have to clear traffic fine for crossing red light (KD. 50 plus suspension of license for 3 months plus 5 points). He surprised to know that he returned car to leasing co. 6 months back and still penalties are coming in his name. Red light is serious offence and when he reaches to traffic his license confiscated for 3 months.
Now he is running leasing co. and traffic offices.
Conclusion is, once you return your leased car to your co. be sure co. has also cancelled from traffic record as well, otherwise someone's mistakes will be accounted in your record and it can be a serious consequences incl. deportation or jail.

i too had bitter experience, before taking on rent i enquired about full insurance, the car rental shop told it is fully covered, i was driving for 3 months then one day suddenly the red light for oil started showing up and sound started coming from engine, i immediately stopped , next day i went to car rental shop, they checked and said engine has gone , and you have to repair it at your own cost, i told you had told insurance is covered, they said yes but insurance only in case of accident with police report not engine damage is covered. it was shocking for me, finally i had to repair by paying 140 Kd i was paying 120 kd as monthly rent, i was told that in contract they have written many exploiting conditions in arabic such as if you exeeds every day 100 km you have pay200 fills per km .or modify the milometer, you have to pay 500 kd, or tyre get damaged, you have to pay for replacement,
i was told many indians have suffered due to sudden problem while driving and had to pay large amount for getting repair even though they used only for 2-3 days,
Therefore be careful, we dont know what is hidden problem of the car, engine etc
Better avoid taking car on rental basis. They will screw up.
