Analysis of valet ticket

Analysis of Valet Ticket Valet tickets are mostly used in nightclubs, bars, restaurants, weddings, hotels among other places to provide professional services that offer convenient services to customers. This service is either paid for by the customer or provided free of charge by the organization. Usually, valet parking ticket is provided in urban areas where parking spaces are scarce. Valet parking ticket can be provided in places where parking is unlimited to provide convenience to patrons. The purpose of this paper is to explain the strengths and weakness of a valet ticket in terms of its legality.
There is a variety of laws which regulates valet ticket across U. S. These laws have been put in place so as to safeguard consumers from the damage of cars and personal belongings inside the car. Valet parking is mostly common in California particularly in Southern California and Los Angeles (Chrest, 2001). Planet Hollywood hotel& casino based in Las Vegas has a valet parking service. The state must license each valet organization in California. In order for the hotel to qualify for the license, the hotel must have an insurance policy to protect the vehicles while in their custody. The insurance cover will protect the persons and vehicles up to a specific amount of a deductible.
Bailment theory has been defined as the delivery of something in respect of trust for a special object. If a car is damaged or a person is injured while is in the hotel, the initial question is whether a valet ticket has been offered. When a car containing personal belongings is left in a valet parking, courts usually engage in two analysis to determine liability. One concerns the vehicle and the other concerns the contents in the vehicle. When keys are left with the valet operator, there is bailment. However, if there is damage to a vehicle, and the keys had not been surrendered to the valet there is no bailment.
