San Francisco Sues Hertz for “Ripping Off” Drivers Who Cross the Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco Chronicle reports, “For many visitors to San Francisco, a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge is a must. But if they’re driving a Hertz rental car, they’re being ripped off, the city attorney’s office says. In a suit filed Wednesday [March 1], City Attorney Dennis Herrera charged that the rental car giant and a business partner have been fraudulently deceiving tens of thousands of customers into paying what amounts to millions of dollars in extra [toll-related] fees over the past four years ‘for the simple act of crossing San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge.’”
