Question for the Group - Auto Insurance

June 1st, 2016 at 05:50 pm

We are setting up homeowners insurance for our new home and switching our current home to an investment property. I have that all nailed down, but in doing the research, we are bundling in our car insurance with a new company.

They are PUSHING one of those driving Data Recorders. You use for 90 days and depending on how you do, they supposedly decrease your insurance from 10-25%. We have always been against that type of data collection as it doesn't account for so many things.

However, since we are discussing it, I was wondering if anyone tried it and if so, what was your experience?

    Maybe I am paranoid but it is too "Big Brother" for me. This coming from someone who hasn't been pulled over in at least 15 years. I very much obey the traffic laws. Also, is there any recourse if you believe the data is off?

    No haven't tried them. Let us know what you decide.

    I wouldn't do it. Who knows what else it might be recording. The way they target ads to people these days it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't have voice activated software that looks for key words you say an then targets you by mail with the stuff you were talking about. It is already happening with smart TV's and some computer web cam software.

    We are very uneasy with the idea and have chosen to forgo it. Man, the insurance guys are pushy about it.

    We are also uneasy with the idea. What if they decide the data they collect means they should raise your rates?
