Thousands of people drive rental cars every day, making them a breeding ground for harmful germs.
"These are the hot spots," E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork says. "The steering wheel, the control knobs and door handles, but the gear shift is the biggest offender."
Lower your risk of coming in contact with dangerous bacteria in your next rental car with two simple steps:
• Use alcohol based hand wipes to clean the steering wheel, radio knobs, gear shift and door handles.
• If your rental car appears dirty, request another vehicle.
