MAPFRE | Commerce Insurance Introduces Telematics Program to Improve New
DriveAdvisor℠ Program Launched in Massachusetts
WEBSTER, Mass. -- December 17, 2013
As part of its ongoing commitment to improve new driver safety, MAPFRE |
Commerce Insurance today announced the launch in Massachusetts of its
DriveAdvisor^SM Program. The new program will allow eligible Massachusetts
drivers to receive comprehensive information on driving patterns and overall
driving behavior through telematics technology.
Participants in the program, which is offered at no cost, will receive a
device that, once installed in a person’s car, will store and transmit data on
how the vehicle is operated, including such information as acceleration,
braking, vehicle speed, and number of miles driven. Participants will have the
ability to monitor their performance and progress right away through a
confidential and personalized website. The DriveAdvisor^SM Program also
provides feedback on how to improve safe driving.
Drivers with less than three years of driving experience are eligible to
participate in the program. DriveAdvisor^SM is also being made available to
more experienced drivers with a driving history that may need improvement,
subject to eligibility requirements.
Participants, including parents and guardians of new drivers, will be able to
access the secure DriveAdvisor^SM website at any time to review information
such as acceleration, braking, vehicle speed and number of miles driven, as
well as trip maps that display where and when any high risk driving events
occurred. There is also the option to view the driver’s daily, weekly, monthly
and overall “safety score” to help track progress and provide parents an
understanding of safety levels.
“MAPFRE | Commerce Insurance is proud to offer telematics technology to our
Massachusetts drivers. We believe this is a great tool for parents to monitor
and help inexperienced drivers,” said Jaime Tamayo, President and CEO of
MAPFRE | Commerce Insurance.
