DRIVER BEWARE: Documents that make drivers responsible for damages but don't specify the amount owed are examples of blanket authorization. According to Labour Canada, this type of authorization is okay for general guidelines, but follow-up documentation is necessary so the driver knows exactly what he owes and why.
