UK service helps neighbors share cars

Want to rent out your car when you don't need it? A four-month-old London company, WhipCar, hooks up vehicle owners with people who want to rent private cars. Fast Company.com calls it a "peer-to-peer car-hire scheme" that seeks to compete with car-share companies like Zipcar, by making rental cars more available on weekends and in less populated areas, including smaller neighborhoods, where car-sharing firms aren't located.
