Our roads are full of disturbances that lead to unsafe driving behavior, especially for young drivers. Every year, distracted driving causes thousands of deaths in the United States
This is where our driving safety app, YourTurn®, comes in. 1
By measuring certain criteria such as speed, hard braking and the YourTurn program helps to make drivers of all ages more aware of their driving behavior and identifies areas that can be improved. Now there is a new way to look after you and want to help you be safe on the road. (And earn some good rewards! 2 )
4 things to know about YourTurn®
- What the app measures: Hard acceleration, hard braking, hard cornering, speed, phone use while driving and driven miles.
- Make it a friendly competition: "Family Mode" is an opt-in program that allows family members to see each other's points, most recent location, travel details, trends and streaks. Points go into leaderboards and let users see how they are performing compared to their peers.
- Become a safer driver: During the first 30 days of the program, users see an average reduction of these activities: 35% reduction of telephone distractions, 20% reduction of hard braking and 20% reduction of fast driving speeds. 3
- What is it to me? Well, not only will you be a safer driver, but you will also have the chance to earn rewards (up to $ 5 or $ 10 every other week) 2 based on your driving score. For example, you can use your rewards directly 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.
