MAPFRE Insurance Expands Telematics Program to Improve Driver Safety

DriveAdvisorSM Program now available in the states of Connecticut and Washington

WEBSTER, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 1, 2014 — As part of its ongoing commitment to improve driver safety, MAPFRE Insurance today announced that its DriveAdvisorSM Program is expanding to include the states of Connecticut and Washington. DriveAdvisorSM is a voluntary program that provides an auto insurance discount for customers who elect to use telematics technology to monitor their driving behavior. The discount is available to eligible customers who participate in the program by installing the DriveAdvisorSM device in their car.

The DriveAdvisorSM device stores and transmits data on how a vehicle is operated, including such information as acceleration, braking, vehicle speed, and number of miles driven. Customers using the device receive online confidential feedback about their driving behavior. A personalized report shows drivers their performance and progress over time and offers ways to improve safe driving.

“MAPFRE Insurance is pleased to offer our customers this safe driving technology,” said Jaime Tamayo, President and CEO of MAPFRE Insurance. “Our goal is to improve driver and roadway safety by providing meaningful driving behavior and performance feedback using the cutting-edge technology of the DriveAdvisorSM Program.”

Participation in the program is voluntary and customers may opt-out at any time. It is available at this time to Connecticut, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts and Rhode Island drivers. Customers interested in obtaining more information about DriveAdvisorSM should contact their local independent agent.
