At CES 2015, it was announced that the GM OnStar program will be implementing a driver assessment metric that tracks how well drivers drive. Although this might seem like a bit of a Big Brother move on the part of General Motors, the updated GM OnStar service actually works to the benefit of the driver and the community he or she resides in.
Those with a better history of driving will be eligible for lower insurance rates since GM OnStar works collaboratively with Progressive's Snapshot insurance discount program. People can also opt into this driver assessment feature, ensuring privacy if desired. By implementing this feature, GM OnStar provides people with a big incentive to drive more safely, ensuring accidents are lowered.
