Erie Insurance, ADEPT Driver Partner to Reduce Teen Crashes
May 29, 2019—ADEPT Driver and Erie Insurance announced a new partnership to help teen drivers, covered by Erie Insurance policies in Wisconsin and Virginia, reduce their crash risk and save money on auto insurance.
Using advanced behavioral science and research, teenSMART offers youthful drivers realistic and challenging driving simulations that address the six leading causes of teen driver crashes. Teens that complete the computer-based course learn skills proven to dramatically reduce teen driver crash frequency and severity.
"ADEPT Driver incorporates cutting-edge behavioral science to improve driver behavior and reduce teen drivers' risk of collisions," said Jon Bloom, vice president of personal auto, Erie Insurance. "One of the key components of ERIE's mission is to provide as near perfect protection as is humanly possible. Offering our customers proven tools to protect their new driver, when they are at the greatest risk of injury, helps us fulfill this mission. We encourage all teen drivers to complete teenSMART training."
