(a) At the time when a vehicle owner registers as a shared vehicle owner on a peer-to-peer car sharing program and prior to the time when the shared vehicle owner makes a shared motor vehicle available for car sharing on the peer-to-peer car sharing program, the peer-to-peer car sharing program shall:

(3) Disclose in the description of the shared motor vehicle on the peer-to-peer car sharing program's website the information provided under item (2) of this subsection so that potential shared vehicle drivers are aware of the last State inspection date before they enter into a peer-to-peer car sharing program agreement; and

(2) If a shared vehicle owner has obtained a valid State inspection certificate for a motor vehicle under paragraph (1) of this subsection, the shared vehicle owner shall obtain another valid State inspection certificate at least once for every 10,000 miles added to the vehicle's odometer since the issuance of the prior State inspection certificate.
