sub specie aeternitatis

Forget the compact, how about a big rig?

In any state, if a person in under 25, he either is not allowed to rent a car at all, or must pay an under 25 fee. I’m not sure precisely why this is, but my guess would be for insurance purposes. But, if a person is over 21 years of age, he can walk over to the nearest Uhaul location and rent their largest truck with no problem. Does anyone else see anything wrong with this picture? Let’s say Bob is 21 years old. Bob can’t rent a Nissan Sentra, but he will have no problem renting a 25 foot long truck? How does that make any sense? Guess if you’re under 25 and you need a rental, head over to the closest Uhaul instead of Hertz.
