Greener Auto Insurance Based on Miles Driven

Auto use-based insurance can reduce driving by 10-15%. And that equals less risk to the insurer: A 10% decrease in driving nets @ 17% decrease in crashes.

Auto Insurance

Studies show that if the full cost of car insurance is converted to a per-mile basis -- while still accounting for traditional rating factors -- use-based insurance can reduce driving by 10-15%. And fewer miles driven equals less risk to the insurer: A 10% decrease in driving nets an estimated 17% decrease in crashes.

Progressive and GMAC are currently testing variations of this concept in the U.S., tracking miles driven using onboard computers.

Progressive, which offers a policy called TripSense in Oregon, Michigan and Minnesota, says clients who plug a sensor into their car's onboard diagnostics port save up to 25% on their coverage for driving less. GMAC, which is testing the program with its OnStar system in three states, says customers can lower their premiums by up to 40%.

Before these programs can be implemented nationwide, however, many states need to change laws or regulations to allow for this type of insurance plan.
