my Driving Discount Tips
Being a good driver can save you money. You just need to know how. Keeping telematics in mind, the following tips will ensure you maximize your insurance discount when using my Driving Discount :
Going easy on the brakes is easier on the wallet.While sometimes unavoidable, hard braking increases the likelihood of an accident occurring. To avoid a hard braking event (which is defined as decelerating 12 km/h in less than 1 second), keep your eyes and mind on vehicles around you. Maintain a safe speed and distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
By not accelerating your car, you can accelerate savings.Rapid acceleration increases the likelihood of an accident occurring. Allowing enough time to get your destination safely is probably the easiest way to avoid the excessive acceleration (defined as accelerating 12 km/h in less than 1 second) that could affect your discount.
Avoiding driving later can bring you savings sooner.With factors such as reduced visibility and increased fatigue, driving between midnight and 4 a.m. has been statistically proven to increase the risk of being involved in an accident. So if you can avoid doing much driving during high-risk times, you'll begin building projected savings sooner.
