    More than five thousand people have signed a petition calling on Queenstown's mayor to make rental car companies accountable for drivers

    More than five thousand people have signed a petition calling on Queenstown's mayor to make rental car companies accountable for drivers


    The region's had a spate of serious crashes, culminating in fed-up locals meeting with local authorities to call for serious change.

    Petition organiser Peter Newport asks if you'd rent your own car to someone who didn't know our roads, was jet-lagged, and used to driving on the other side of the road.

    He says if rental car companies are making money, they should take responsibility for their drivers' actions.
