Erie Insurance Rewards Based Driving
Erie Insurance introduced a new incentive program in 2018 called Your Turn Rewards based on real world data. The telematics program began initially for youthful driver between 16 and 23 but has been expanded to include all drivers.
The program is optional and open for all drivers on an Erie personal auto policy. Initially launched for youthful operators age 16 to 23, it was expanded in the fall of 2019 to include adults as well. You can choose to enroll everyone or certain drivers on your policy.
'Bea-ing' rewarded as a conscious driver
The purpose of the program is to incentivize and reward good habits while providing advice on improving targeted driving habits. Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of deaths in the country. Measuring phone distraction along with several other metrics this is a great tool to ascertain your own driving habits and help your kids.
How does this work?
The program is entirely run via a mobile app (only available via Google Play and Apple store) and your mobile phone. The YourTurn app from Erie Insurance and Cambridge Mobile Telematics provides feedback and gathers data about various aspects of your driving to help you become a better and safer driver.
The data categories that are scored include:
· Hard acceleration
· Hard braking
· Hard cornering
· Phone use/distraction
What information is used and how?
User's of the program will be scored on a scale of 0-100 every 2 weeks with an opportunity to earn between $5 and $10. The maximum reward for adults is $5 and youthful drivers 16-23 is $10. The balance of your reward is maintained within the app and can be redeemed at any time for gift cards at various retailers (like Amazon, iTunes, Dunkin Donuts), or donated to charity.
