6 ways auto insurers are addressing distracted driving

Aug 2, 2022

Dangerous driving is at an all-time high since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, with upward trends in speeding, dangerous driving at night and a large increase in distracted driving. Potential solutions are on the way, however, with legislation supporting hands-free technology and insurers adopting telematics programs to continuously monitor drivers. Read more about how insurers are addressing increased distracted driving in our roundup. David Paul Morris/Bloomberg Distracted driving at an all-time high: How insurers can respond Insurers have released new data revealing that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an increase in unsafe, distracted driving. “People were working from home and there was a real sense that roads were empty and people tend to drive faster and take more risks [when there is less traffic,” said Chris Hayes, assistant vice president of transportation and risk control at Travelers.] “It changed the way that people drove.” Nearly 20% of respondents in a recent Travelers Risk Index survey reported texting or emailing while driving pre-pandemic. Now this dangerous practice is up to 23%. Other data changes include checking social media, which increased two percentage points to 15%, as well as taking videos and pictures, which has climbed to 12% from its pre-pandemic levels of 10%. Nationwide advocates for hands-free legislation Nationwide is urging for hands-free legislation in every U.S. In a recent survey conducted by the firm, 86% of drivers say they too support legislation in their states that prohibit holding a phone while driving to talk, text or for other purposes outside of emergencies. “We know hands-free primary enforcement legislation works,” said Nationwide CEO Kirt Walker. “A 2018 analysis showed that states that enact this type of legislation experienced a 15% decrease in auto crash-related fatalities two years after the enactment of this type of law. Six states in that same analysis saw a decrease of more than 20% in fatality rates.” For a potential solution, Nationwide joined insurtechs, Cambridge Mobile Telematics and NoCell to make technology available to drivers that could correct distracted behaviors. Pedestrian crash avoidance tech works but not in the dark, IIHS Crash rates were 27% lower for vehicles that had pedestrian automatic emergency braking systems, according to a study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. With information included about lighting, speed limit and the layout of a crash, it’s clear that pedestrian AEB does reduce the odds of a crash in daylight and in areas with artificial lighting. “The daylight test has helped drive the adoption of this technology,” said David Aylor, manager of active safety testing at IIHS, in a statement. “But the goal of our ratings is always to address as many real-world injuries and fatalities as possible — and that means we need to test these systems at night.” Nationwide teams up with CMT on driving notifications In an effort to improve driver retention and roadway safety, Nationwide is working with Cambridge Mobile Telematics, to add the DriveWell Messaging platform to its telematics products lineup. “CMT offers dependable and accurate solutions that aligned with our needs at the time that they were selected as our app service provider,” said Kelly Hernandez, assistant vice president of personal lines, telematics at Nationwide. “In any app-based telematics solution, it is critical that each user is aware of the settings that are required to enable trip collection.” Drivers are 65% safer on the road and 57% less distracted if they are highly engaged while driving, according to CMT research. Additionally, engaged drivers are 160% more likely to be retained, if the driver is highly engaged within the first 30 days of the program.
