There is a situation where this sort of this is worth, and the base concept is sound (cheaper premiums to verifiably safer drivers).

You'd need a not for profit organisation to actually collect the data. The insurance industry should fund it but have no direct control over it. The organisation would then set out stringent privacy controls and only give the insurance companies a score and no real data.

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is precisely 1 bananosecond.
