Haven't Driven in Awhile? You Might Want to Check Your Car for Rats

With stay-at-home orders continuing though May 30, a lot of cars have been gathering dust in people's driveways. And, as The New York Times reports, they might also be gathering rats.

The rodents really like hanging out in car engines, as Kelsey Snell just learned. She took her car out for the first time in about a week on Tuesday and got "a really weird error message" as she drove away. When Snell popped the hood, she discovered "poop all over the engine," small bones and "a puddle of rat urine."

When she called her local service center, she was told that such incidents have become "super common" within "the past two or three weeks."
