Good2Go Auto Insurance is offering a discount to its policyholders if they download and use the LifeSaver distracted-driving mobile app.
“Distracted driving continues to be a threat to our public safety,” said Joe DeLago, CEO of Atlanta-based Good2Go Auto Insurance. “Thousands of people are dying each year and hundreds of thousands more are becoming injured. In our effort to fight against distracted driving, and help reduce driver risks, we researched distracted-driving solutions and decided LifeSaver offers the best solution.
“With the LifeSaver mobile app, Good2Go Auto Insurance’s direct policyholders now have a simple way to ignore the urge to use their phones while driving. This type of technology is vital if we are to continue to combat this epidemic.”
The LifeSaver app automatically detects driving and blocks use of Android devices and delivers a “Keep your eyes on the road” notification on iPhones while the vehicle is in motion. A web-based portal enables parents and fleet managers to monitor users’ driving behavior.
“With the rising costs of auto insurance, consumers now have a way to be rewarded with a driver safety discount that’s measurable and effective at reducing driver distraction,” said Ted Chen, LifeSaver’s co-founder. “Using LifeSaver to get the Good2Go Cell Phone Safety Discount is analogous to installing a smoke alarm to get your home insurance safety discount. We are proud to partner with Good2Go in pioneering the concept of the Cell Phone Safety Discount and we hope that other insurers will join them in this approach to stem the tide of the distracted driving epidemic.”
