Allstate Drivewise Program Hits Milestone, Continues Expansion
Sept. 17, 2013—The Allstate Insurance Drivewise program launched in Kentucky and Montana on Monday, shortly after the program registered more than one billion miles driven, capturing about 28 million driving hours of data.
The Drivewise program, now available in 22 states, measures things such as mileage, hard braking, excessive speed and time of day when a customer drives. It then rewards safe drivers with savings on their insurance.
Allstate continues its expansion plan with Drivewise and expects to see the program available in the majority of the country by year end. Upon signing up for and using the device, customers receive savings equal to 10 percent of premium. After the first six months of use, customer savings are based on driving performance calculated from the data collected.
"As we ride past one billion miles, it's good to look back on the mission of the Drivewise offering—to help create a safer, more self-aware driver," said Steve Sorenson, Allstate product operations executive vice president. "We are proud to offer customers a deep view into the way they really drive and, at the same time, reward them for safe driving habits—habits that can help make the roads safer for themselves and others."
