New York State has banned all rental vehicles in its state and the District of Columbia.
The new ban comes in response to a rash of crashes involving vehicles that were rented or leased.
The ban comes as New York City’s Transportation Department tries to reduce the number of people injured and killed by rental vehicles.
The city has suspended the rental license of all vehicles rented out for more than one day.
New York state is also banning all rentals and leases that require a driver to have a driver’s license.
The state says that all vehicles owned or leased in New England must undergo an inspection to make sure they are properly licensed.
The department is also investigating a rash, and has asked the Federal Trade Commission to investigate complaints.
The New York Times reports that drivers in the state are complaining about the increased frequency of crashes.
The Associated Press says that the new ban is the result of a “very large spike in rental vehicle crashes, with more than 2,000 in New Hampshire alone last year, a number that has increased nearly twofold since 2013.”
The AP reported that the number one cause of crashes in New Jersey, which also has a rental ban, was the use of a tow truck or trailer.
