Driver Surveillance Facts and FAQ's
Simply put, it works because we have nation wide coverage, credible monitors, fast reporting, and our customers have adopted the service into there safety program.
We initially ask our customers to run the program for a minimum of 1 month without notifying the drivers in order to establish a baseline. Once the baseline is set and the drivers are notified, we have seen a 20-35% reduction in speeding. When speaking with our customers, they have also seen the same data as it directly correlated with their accident data.

Better driving records and lowering accidents translates into lower insurance costs. Insurance companies base their rates on driver’s ratings by the number of accidents and citations. The lower the rating, the lower the rates will be. Once you have better driver ratings, the best way to reduce your insurance is to renegotiate and/or bid out your policy.
In addition, many insurers offer a discount if you have a driver improvement program.
