273 during each car-sharing period, the shared vehicle owner and the
274 shared vehicle driver are insured under a motor vehicle
275 insurance policy that provides all of the following:
276 a. Property damage liability coverage that meets the
277 minimum coverage amounts required under s. 324.022.
278 b. Bodily injury liability coverage limits as described in
279 s. 324.021(7)(a) and (b).

282 d. Uninsured and underinsured vehicle coverage as required
283 under s. 627.727.
284 2. The peer-to-peer car-sharing program shall also ensure
285 that the motor vehicle insurance policy under subparagraph 1.:
286 a. Recognizes that the shared vehicle insured under the
287 policy is made available and used through a peer-to-peer car
288 sharing program; or
289 b. Does not exclude the use of a shared vehicle by a shared
290 vehicle driver.

292 satisfied by a motor vehicle insurance policy maintained by:
293 a. A shared vehicle owner;
294 b. A shared vehicle driver;
295 c. A peer-to-peer car-sharing program; or
296 d. A combination of a shared vehicle owner, a shared
297 vehicle driver, and a peer-to-peer car-sharing program.
298 2. The insurance policy maintained in subparagraph 1. which
299 satisfies the insurance requirements under paragraph (a) is
300 primary during each car-sharing period. If a claim occurs during
301 the car-sharing period in another state with minimum financial
302 responsibility limits higher than those limits required under
303 chapter 324, the coverage maintained under paragraph (a)
304 satisfies the difference in minimum coverage amounts up to the
305 applicable policy limits.

307 or shared vehicle driver in accordance with subparagraph 1. has
308 lapsed or does not provide the coverage required under paragraph
309 (a), the insurance maintained by the peer-to-peer car-sharing
310 program must provide the coverage required under paragraph (a),
311 beginning with the first dollar of a claim, and must defend such
312 claim, except under circumstances as set forth in subparagraph

317 claim, and another motor vehicle insurance policy is not
318 required to first deny a claim.
319 c. Notwithstanding any other law, statute, rule, or
320 regulation to the contrary, a peer-to-peer car-sharing program
321 has an insurable interest in a shared vehicle during the car
322 sharing period. This sub-subparagraph does not create liability
323 for a peer-to-peer car-sharing program for maintaining the
324 coverage required under paragraph (a) and under this paragraph,
325 if applicable.
326 d. A peer-to-peer car-sharing program may own and maintain
327 as the named insured one or more policies of motor vehicle
328 insurance which provide coverage for:
329 (I) Liabilities assumed by the peer-to-peer car-sharing
330 program under a peer–to–peer car-sharing program agreement;
331 (II) Liability of the shared vehicle owner;
332 (III) Liability of the shared vehicle driver;
333 (IV) Damage or loss to the shared motor vehicle; or
334 (V) Damage, loss, or injury to persons or property to
335 satisfy the personal injury protection and uninsured and
336 underinsured motorist coverage requirements of this section.
337 e. Insurance required under paragraph (a), when maintained
338 by a peer-to-peer car-sharing program, may be provided by an
339 insurer authorized to do business in this state which is a
340 member of the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association or an
341 eligible surplus lines insurer that has a superior, excellent,
342 exceptional, or equivalent financial strength rating by a rating
343 agency acceptable to the office. A peer-to-peer car-sharing
344 program is not transacting in insurance when it maintains the
345 insurance required under this section.
346 (3) LIABILITIES AND INSURANCE EXCLUSIONS.—
347 (a) Liability.—
348 1. A peer-to-peer car-sharing program shall assume

351 parties or uninsured and underinsured motorist or personal
352 injury protection losses during the car-sharing period in an
353 amount stated in the peer-to-peer car-sharing program agreement,
354 which amount may not be less than those set forth in ss.
355 324.021(7)(a) and (b), 324.022, 627.727, and 627.736,
357 2. The assumption of liability under subparagraph 1. does
358 not apply if a shared vehicle owner:

361 program before the car-sharing period in which the loss occurs;
363 b. Acts in concert with a shared vehicle driver who fails
364 to return the shared vehicle pursuant to the terms of the peer
365 to-peer car-sharing program agreement.
366 3. The insurer, insurers, or peer-to-peer car-sharing
367 program providing coverage under paragraph (2)(a) shall assume
368 primary liability for a claim when:

371 sharing program does not have available, did not retain, or
372 fails to provide the information required under subsection (5);
374 b. A dispute exists over whether the shared vehicle was
375 returned to the alternatively agreed-upon location as required
376 under subparagraph (1)(d)2.
377 (b) Vicarious liability.—A peer-to-peer car-sharing program
378 and a shared vehicle owner are exempt from vicarious liability
379 consistent with 49 U.S.C. s. 30106 (2005) under any state or
380 local law that imposes liability solely based on vehicle
382 (c) Exclusions in motor vehicle insurance policies.—An
383 authorized insurer that writes motor vehicle liability insurance

396 contained in a motor vehicle insurance policy, including any
397 insurance policy in use or approved for use which excludes
398 coverage for motor vehicles made available for rent, sharing, or
399 hire or for any business use. This paragraph does not
400 invalidate, limit, or restrict an insurer’s ability under
401 existing law to underwrite, cancel, or nonrenew any insurance
403 (d) Contribution against indemnification.—A shared vehicle
404 owner’s motor vehicle insurer that defends or indemnifies a
405 claim against a shared vehicle which is excluded under the terms
406 of its policy has the right to seek recovery against the motor
407 vehicle insurer of the peer-to-peer car-sharing program if the
408 claim is:
409 1. Made against the shared vehicle owner or the shared
410 vehicle driver for loss or injury that occurs during the car
411 sharing period; and
412 2. Excluded under the terms of its policy.

414 motor vehicle owner registers as a shared vehicle owner on a
415 peer-to-peer car-sharing program and before the shared vehicle
416 owner may make a shared vehicle available for car sharing on the
417 peer-to-peer car-sharing program, the peer-to-peer car-sharing
418 program must notify the shared vehicle owner that, if the shared
419 vehicle has a lien against it, the use of the shared vehicle
420 through a peer-to-peer car-sharing program, including the use
421 without physical damage coverage, may violate the terms of the
422 contract with the lienholder.
423 (5) RECORDKEEPING.—A peer-to-peer car-sharing program
425 (a) Collect and verify records pertaining to the use of a
426 shared vehicle, including, but not limited to, the times used,

428 received by the shared vehicle owner;
429 (b) Retain the records in paragraph (a) for a time period
430 not less than the applicable personal injury statute of
431 limitations; and
432 (c) Provide the information contained in the records in

434 shared vehicle owner’s insurer, or the shared vehicle driver’s
435 insurer to facilitate a claim coverage investigation,
436 settlement, negotiation, or litigation.
437 (6) CONSUMER PROTECTIONS.—
438 (a) Disclosures.—Each peer-to-peer car-sharing program
439 agreement made in this state must disclose to the shared vehicle

442 seek indemnification from the shared vehicle owner or the shared

446 2. That a motor vehicle insurance policy issued to the

448 vehicle driver does not provide a defense or indemnification for
449 any claim asserted by the peer-to-peer car-sharing program.
450 3. That the peer-to-peer car-sharing program’s insurance
451 coverage on the shared vehicle owner and the shared vehicle
452 driver is in effect only during each car-sharing period and
453 that, for any use of the shared vehicle by the shared vehicle
454 driver after the car-sharing termination time, the shared
455 vehicle driver and the shared vehicle owner may not have
456 insurance coverage.
457 4. The daily rate and, if applicable, any insurance or
458 protection package costs that are charged to the shared vehicle
