Jacksonville Insurance Agents Offer Gadget To Reduce Rates

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- You may be a safe driver, but because of bad drivers, fraudulent claims, and the economic downturn, auto insurance rates in Florida are up 4.8 percent over the past six months.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners said Florida drivers are paying the fifth highest auto insurance premiums in the country.

David Bissell is an independent insurance agent and said he's seeing technology playing a part in measuring drivers habits and the rates they pay.

"The technology is advancing, not going backward," he said.

His agency was recently certified by Progressive Auto insurance to offer customers the snapshot. It is a device that goes on the vehicle to monitor driving habits.

"It measures speed, G-force, braking for purposes of getting you a discount on your auto insurance?  Discounts up to 30%," said Bissell.
