Our roads are full of distractions that lead to unsafe driving behaviors, especially for young drivers. Every year, distracted driving causes thousands of deaths in the U.S.
That’s where our driving safety app, YourTurn®, comes in.1
By measuring certain criteria such as speeding, hard braking, and phone usage, the YourTurn program helps to make drivers of all ages more aware of their driving behaviors and identifies areas for improvement.
You already know you can count on us to provide reliable auto insurance. Now, there’s a new way we’re looking out for you and want to help you stay safe on the road. (And earn some great rewards!2)
4 Things to Know About YourTurn®
- What the app measures: Hard acceleration, hard braking, hard cornering, speeding, phone usage while driving, and miles driven.
- Make it a friendly competition: “Family mode” is an opt-in program that allows family members to see one another’s scores, latest location, trip details, trends, and streaks. Scores go into leaderboards and allow users to see how they’re performing compared to their peers.
- Become a safer driver: Within the first 30 days of the program, users see an average reduction in these activities: 35% decrease in phone distractions, 20% reduction in hard braking, and 20% reduction in at-risk speeding.3
- What’s in it for me? Well, you’ll not only be a safer driver, but you’ll also have the chance to earn rewards (up to $5 or $10 every two weeks)2 based on your driving score. For example, you can use your rewards instantly for a latte at Starbucks® or save them for a larger purchase. You can even choose to donate your rewards to a charity of your choice.
