Fearing Germs on Steering Wheels, Japanese Shun Car-Sharing
Car sharing was meant to cut out the middle man — with drivers passing the car from one person to the next, there’s no need for expensive car rental offices or staff.

“It’s hard to disinfect the cars when handing them off to the next person,” Miyao said. “People will be asking themselves what kind of person was it that used the vehicle beforehand, and that makes them a little bit afraid.”
