My elderly father has been loaning a truck to my sisters husband. This person has a suspended license and is a real loose cannon in general.
Anybody know the consequences if there is any kind of incident?....I know thats a very open set of circumstances but I'm trying to find out all I can..
My sister has told my parents that it is ok, that nothing would happen, all he would get is a warning.

Thanks guys, I do appreciate any help you can give. Responses
