According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), distracted driving is the #1 killer of teens in America. Distracted driving isn't just texting; it’s talking with passengers in the car, chatting on the cell phone, taking a sip of coffee, or even catching a "quick" glimpse at the GPS.
Upon completion of a teen safe driving program, you can qualify to save up to 15% on auto insurance. Many of the 12 different auto insurance companies my agency represents participate in a teen driving program. Even more important than reducing the cost of auto insurance premiums, is keeping our children safe through education.
In addition to training, most insurance companies have a smart device that can be plugged into the car. This does not track your children's movement like GPS, but it does keep tract of aggressive driving, such as hard acceleration and braking, along with the time of day. This is uploaded to a web application that can be viewed anytime. Much like the teen driving program, this device provides an additional auto insurance discount. Combine the two programs and receive up to a 30% discount on your auto insurance premium. To check out rates, click Get Auto Insurance Quote and start saving.
