55 the legislative intent that every person is exercising a taxable
56 privilege who engages in the business of selling tangible
57 personal property at retail in this state, including the
58 business of making mail order sales, or who rents or furnishes
59 any of the things or services taxable under this chapter, or who

318 (2) INSURANCE COVERAGE REQUIREMENTS.—
319 (a)1. A peer-to-peer car-sharing program shall ensure that,
320 during each car-sharing period, the shared vehicle owner and the
321 shared vehicle driver are insured under a motor vehicle
322 insurance policy that provides all of the following:
323 a. Property damage liability coverage that meets the
324 minimum coverage amounts required under s. 324.022.
325 b. Bodily injury liability coverage limits as described in
326 s. 324.021(7)(a) and (b).
327 c. Personal injury protection benefits that meet the
328 minimum coverage amounts required under s. 627.736.
329 d. Uninsured and underinsured vehicle coverage as required
330 under s. 627.727.
331 2. The peer-to-peer car-sharing program shall also ensure
332 that the motor vehicle insurance policy under subparagraph 1.:
333 a. Recognizes that the shared vehicle insured under the
334 policy is made available and used through a peer-to-peer car
335 sharing program; or
336 b. Does not exclude the use of a shared vehicle by a shared
337 vehicle driver.
338 (b)1. The insurance described under paragraph (a) may be
339 satisfied by a motor vehicle insurance policy maintained by:
340 a. A shared vehicle owner;
341 b. A shared vehicle driver;
342 c. A peer-to-peer car-sharing program; or
343 d. A combination of a shared vehicle owner, a shared
344 vehicle driver, and a peer-to-peer car-sharing program.
345 2. The insurance policy maintained in subparagraph 1. which
346 satisfies the insurance requirements under paragraph (a) is
347 primary during each car-sharing period. If a claim occurs during
348 the car-sharing period in another state with minimum financial
349 responsibility limits higher than those limits required under
350 chapter 324, the coverage maintained under paragraph (a)
351 satisfies the difference in minimum coverage amounts up to the
352 applicable policy limits.
353 3.a. If the insurance maintained by a shared vehicle owner
354 or shared vehicle driver in accordance with subparagraph 1. has
355 lapsed or does not provide the coverage required under paragraph
356 (a), the insurance maintained by the peer-to-peer car-sharing
357 program must provide the coverage required under paragraph (a),
358 beginning with the first dollar of a claim, and must defend such
359 claim, except under circumstances as set forth in subparagraph
361 b. Coverage under a motor vehicle insurance policy
362 maintained by the peer-to-peer car-sharing program must not be
363 dependent on another motor vehicle insurer first denying a
364 claim, and another motor vehicle insurance policy is not
365 required to first deny a claim.
366 c. Notwithstanding any other law, statute, rule, or
367 regulation to the contrary, a peer-to-peer car-sharing program
368 has an insurable interest in a shared vehicle during the car
369 sharing period. This sub-subparagraph does not create liability
370 for a peer-to-peer car-sharing program for maintaining the
371 coverage required under paragraph (a) and under this paragraph,
372 if applicable.
373 d. A peer-to-peer car-sharing program may own and maintain
374 as the named insured one or more policies of motor vehicle
375 insurance which provide coverage for:
376 (I) Liabilities assumed by the peer-to-peer car-sharing
377 program under a peer–to–peer car-sharing program agreement;
378 (II) Liability of the shared vehicle owner;
379 (III) Liability of the shared vehicle driver;
380 (IV) Damage or loss to the shared motor vehicle; or
381 (V) Damage, loss, or injury to persons or property to
382 satisfy the personal injury protection and uninsured and
383 underinsured motorist coverage requirements of this section.
384 e. Insurance required under paragraph (a), when maintained
385 by a peer-to-peer car-sharing program, may be provided by an
386 insurer authorized to do business in this state which is a
387 member of the Florida Insurance Guaranty Association or an
388 eligible surplus lines insurer that has a superior, excellent,
389 exceptional, or equivalent financial strength rating by a rating
390 agency acceptable to the office. A peer-to-peer car-sharing
391 program is not transacting in insurance when it maintains the
392 insurance required under this section.
393 (3) LIABILITIES AND INSURANCE EXCLUSIONS.—
394 (a) Liability.—
395 1. A peer-to-peer car-sharing program shall assume
396 liability, except as provided in subparagraph 2., of a shared
397 vehicle owner for bodily injury or property damage to third
398 parties or uninsured and underinsured motorist or personal
399 injury protection losses during the car-sharing period in an
400 amount stated in the peer-to-peer car-sharing program agreement,
401 which amount may not be less than those set forth in ss.
402 324.021(7)(a) and (b), 324.022, 627.727, and 627.736,
404 2. The assumption of liability under subparagraph 1. does
405 not apply if a shared vehicle owner:
406 a. Makes an intentional or fraudulent material
407 misrepresentation or omission to the peer-to-peer car-sharing
408 program before the car-sharing period in which the loss occurs;
410 b. Acts in concert with a shared vehicle driver who fails
411 to return the shared vehicle pursuant to the terms of the peer
412 to-peer car-sharing program agreement.
413 3. The insurer, insurers, or peer-to-peer car-sharing
414 program providing coverage under paragraph (2)(a) shall assume
415 primary liability for a claim when:
416 a. A dispute exists over who was in control of the shared
417 motor vehicle at the time of the loss, and the peer-to-peer car
418 sharing program does not have available, did not retain, or
419 fails to provide the information required under subsection (5);
421 b. A dispute exists over whether the shared vehicle was
422 returned to the alternatively agreed-upon location as required
423 under subparagraph (1)(d)2.
424 (b) Vicarious liability.—A peer-to-peer car-sharing program
425 and a shared vehicle owner are exempt from vicarious liability
426 consistent with 49 U.S.C. s. 30106 (2005) under any state or
427 local law that imposes liability solely based on vehicle
429 (c) Exclusions in motor vehicle insurance policies.—An
430 authorized insurer that writes motor vehicle liability insurance
431 in this state may exclude any coverage and the duty to defend or
432 indemnify for any claim under a shared vehicle owner’s motor
433 vehicle insurance policy, including, but not limited to:
434 1. Liability coverage for bodily injury and property
436 2. Personal injury protection coverage;
437 3. Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage;
438 4. Medical payments coverage;
439 5. Comprehensive physical damage coverage; and
440 6. Collision physical damage coverage.
442 This paragraph does not invalidate or limit any exclusion
443 contained in a motor vehicle insurance policy, including any
444 insurance policy in use or approved for use which excludes
445 coverage for motor vehicles made available for rent, sharing, or
446 hire or for any business use. This paragraph does not
447 invalidate, limit, or restrict an insurer’s ability under
448 existing law to underwrite, cancel, or nonrenew any insurance
450 (d) Contribution against indemnification.—A shared vehicle
451 owner’s motor vehicle insurer that defends or indemnifies a
452 claim against a shared vehicle which is excluded under the terms
453 of its policy has the right to seek recovery against the motor
454 vehicle insurer of the peer-to-peer car-sharing program if the
455 claim is:
456 1. Made against the shared vehicle owner or the shared
457 vehicle driver for loss or injury that occurs during the car
458 sharing period; and
459 2. Excluded under the terms of its policy.
460 (4) NOTIFICATION OF IMPLICATIONS OF LIEN.—At the time a
461 motor vehicle owner registers as a shared vehicle owner on a
462 peer-to-peer car-sharing program and before the shared vehicle
463 owner may make a shared vehicle available for car sharing on the
464 peer-to-peer car-sharing program, the peer-to-peer car-sharing
465 program must notify the shared vehicle owner that, if the shared
466 vehicle has a lien against it, the use of the shared vehicle
467 through a peer-to-peer car-sharing program, including the use
468 without physical damage coverage, may violate the terms of the
469 contract with the lienholder.
470 (5) RECORDKEEPING.—A peer-to-peer car-sharing program
