> I would like the ability to share (or NOT share) my driving history with my insurance company to get a lower premium
> Many people install company specific devices in their cars to do just that
--See, that attitude right there? THAT'S PART OF THE PROBLEM. Benjamin Franklin had a quote or two for you.
" Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. "
--In this case, you are WILLING to give up a FREEDOM that you should have, just to save a little money. You should be able to drive where you want, when you want, without some insurance app SPYING on you! Being willing to be spied on EVEN MORE than we already are, is actively contributing to eroding the very concept of the USA being a "Free" country!
" I don't mind a camera in my phone... "
" I don't mind my insurance company installing a data-collection device in my car... "
' I don't mind a camera in my bedroom... '
' I don't mind a camera in my bathroom... '
' I don't mind a camera in my always-on TV... '
' We have always been at war with Eurasia... '
" Big Brother is Watching You. "
--As long as you haven't had an accident or ticket in $YEARS, the insurance company already knows you're a safe(r) driver. They don't *need* ever-more invasive looks into your private life to give you decent premium rates! Don't buy into the hype and marketing, and don't make it easier for them to take away your freedoms and liberty.
--Jesus, to think our forefathers died in the wars to protect our freedom, and now the sheeple are voluntarily willing to give it up for crumbs. Nobody learns...
--Truly, Sorry for the rant, I don't want you to feel like I'm going off on you... But my God I wish people would wake the hell up and realize that the East German regime would have KILLED for some of the stuff that people are **voluntarily willing to allow** into their lives these days, just by not being willing to protect what brave and heroic people already fought and died for. Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.
