What is Drive Safe & Save App?
The Drive Safe & Save app is a mobile application that connects with a Bluetooth beacon that you place in your vehicle.

The app also calculates your discount based on your driving performance. You can save up to 30% on your auto insurance by using the app.

How Does Drive Safe & Save App Work?
The Drive Safe & Save app works by using your smartphone's GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, and other sensors to measure your driving behavior. The app also communicates with the Bluetooth beacon that we send you after enrollment. The beacon helps the app accurately record your trips and distinguish between drivers if there are multiple enrolled vehicles or drivers in your household. The app then analyzes your driving data and gives you scores for each trip and each driving event. The higher your scores, the better your driving habits are. The app also shows you how much you are saving per enrolled vehicle based on your scores.
What Type of Driving Feedback Do You Get?
Quick acceleration: The app detects when you accelerate too fast from a stop or when you change lanes abruptly.
Hard braking: The app detects when you brake too hard or too late before a stop or when you follow too closely behind another vehicle.
Fast cornering: The app detects when you turn too fast or too sharply around a corner or a curve.
Speeding: The app detects when you exceed the posted speed limit by more than 8 mph or more than 80% of the time.
Phone distraction: The app detects when you use your phone while driving, such as texting, calling, browsing, or using other apps.
How to Earn Your Best Discount?
Drive smoothly: Avoid quick acceleration, hard braking, and fast cornering. These actions can increase your fuel consumption, wear and tear on your vehicle, and risk of accidents.
Drive at a safe speed: Follow the speed limit and adjust your speed according to the road conditions, traffic, and weather. Speeding can reduce your reaction time, increase your stopping distance, and result in higher fines and penalties.
Drive less distracted: Put your phone away or use hands-free devices while driving. Phone distraction can take your eyes, hands, and mind off the road and increase your chance of crashing.
Drive less frequently: Reduce your mileage by planning your trips ahead, combining errands, carpooling, or using public transportation. Driving less can lower your carbon footprint, save you gas money, and reduce your exposure to traffic hazards.
