"And it's actually legal for an insurance company to foist something like that onto their customers."

"Isn't there a law against that somewhere,"

It is legal as long as they state they're doing it. A car hire company got into the shit a couple of years ago when they started issuing speeding "fines" by reading the GPS logs when the vehicle was returned. Never mind the fact a "fine" is a goverment legislated thing with tight restrictions that retard private car hire companies don't have the luxury to hoist on their customers anyway.

They "fixed" it by burying it in their fine print, and calling a "fee" instead.

Ahh, the fine print, does it know no limits?
