A: “Kris, anytime you drive a vehicle that is owned by someone else, you need to have their permission. If for some reason he was to call the police and report the vehicle stolen, you would be treated just like anyone else in possession of a stolen vehicle. So, please, make sure you have permission if you’re going to be using his car.”
