Travel restriction on rental car driving in the UK

The U.S. Embassy in the United Kingdom has issued a ban effectively immediately on rental car driving within the UK. This is due to several incidents involving traffic accidents or accumulating fines. Until further notice, travelers on Fermilab official work in the UK may not rent cars. Allowable ground transportation includes taxi, train, uber or any other type of transportation where travelers are being driven. As per the Embassy, this is a very strict restriction and all travelers on official work are required to comply.
