"We know Drivewise can create a safer, more self-aware driver and, it remains our goal to offer usage-based insurance to as many of our customers as possible so we can encourage safer driving and pass along a significant discount for it," said Biemer.
Employing advanced telematics technology, Drivewise plugs into the on-board diagnostic port found under the dashboard/steering column on most cars (1996 model year and later) to track driving behavior. Participants can easily plug in the small, wireless telematics device, and then go online or use the new smartphone app to learn about their habits behind the wheel and identify what they can do to become safer drivers.
The web portal and app also display the potential performance discount a customer may be eligible for based on their driving habits, so drivers can constantly connect the way they drive with how much they can save. Rates will not go up based on driving scores, but savings of up to 30 percent can be earned by drivers with the safest driving scores and lowest mileage.
