Am I Responsible for Both Rental Car Keys?

Have you ever rented a car from a company like Avis, Alamo, Budget, Enterprise, or Hertz? Most people have, and you may have noticed something peculiar when you did. After all the documentation has been signed and you're ready to take possession of the vehicle, they hand you the key. However, they don't give you the key. Frequently, they instead hand you the keys - both of the car's keys, stuck together on an unbreakable steel lanyard. The company keeps no copies for themselves. They put you, the customer, in charge of ensuring they don't lose track of the expensive key and the spare.
