 General Motors 'Driver Assessment System' to Help Track How Well Drivers Drive

General Motors (GM) OnStar division has provided a new 'driver assessment program' that can evaluate the driving behavior of people and ultimately can help them get discounted insurance rates for driving well.

The system in cars will be able to track how well drivers drive; hard braking, hard acceleration, and so on and offer detailed feedback after collecting data for 90 days. Following which drivers will have the option of forwarding the data on to Progressive as part of its Snapshot insurance discount program, where people can get discounted insurance rates for driving well.


To compare participating drivers to national averages, the company would be using anonymized driving data. GM reported, "The feature will be available on all 2016 models sold in the US, most 2015 models, and a selection of 2013 and 2014 models."
