    The responses to this topic doe/n't say any such thing. You thrive on one-legged generalities that encompass everyone but yourself. but since you also responded to this topic, we may know say with assurance that you don't care about freedom either, and that these words come from your own mouth.

      The problem I see with this is that the equipment monitoring how you drive and those analyzing the data are making presumptions about how you should drive along with knowing little or nothing about the larger situation around you while driving. From that they are then making choices about things like how much you cost to insure.

      At the same time, insurance companies don't track people for things like accidents where they aren't at fault (either legally or as determined by situation). Basically, this is one more means that interest groups-- like insurers-- can use to drive up rates by using measurable, but questionable, statistical methods.

      For example, which costs insurers more? A driver that is in one accident after another but is never at fault and never gets a ticket, or a driver that never has an accident but gets tickets frequently? After all, the first costs insurers (some insurer) a pile of money in payouts and is an actual risk while the second doesn't cost an insurer a thing, they're only a potential risk.
      Yet, auto insurers will raise the potential risk's policy through the rafters while the real risk never sees an increase.
