Protect yourself from fees when renting cars

CUMMING, Ga. -- For Courtney Emmett it was a shocker when she received a huge bill after turning in her rental car.

She turned in the Enterprise rental car in Cumming, did a walk-around with the agent and got a report that indicated scratches and dings on the rear bumper.

But weeks later Enterprise charged her over $900.

How did she find out about it?

They charged her credit card and later said they found a tear in the bumper and sent the car to a collision shop to replace it.

"There was no crack in the bumper. There is no dent in the bumper. All it was was a tiny bit of a paint scuffing what looked like might have been," said Emmett.

But Enterprise told 11Alive in a prepared statement that the customer is responsible for "any and all damage regardless of fault or negligence."

They also said that Emmett's insurance carrier paid the full claim.

But that wasn't all Emmett got.

Georgia lawmakers vote down annual cost-of-living adjustment

Georgia lawmakers vote down annual cost-of-living adjustment

ATLANTA -- Georgia legislators won't get be getting a raise next year.

In a unanimous decision, the Legislative Services Committee voted on Monday to freeze the cost-of-living adjustment for the third straight year. Members of the General Assembly earn $17,341.68. Georgia has a part-time Legislature that holds a 40-day session each year.

State employees have also had their wages frozen in recent years. House Speaker David Ralston says the freeze is the right thing to do in the down economy. Senate Pro Tempore Tommie Williams agreed, but says increasing lawmaker pay should be explored when the economy improves because the current salary makes it difficult for legislators to serve and earn a living.

Officials say the move amounts to a savings of between $28,000 and $30,000 per year.
