LifeSaver and Cincinnati Insurance Partner to Fight Distracted Driving in Fleets

| September 12, 2017

LifeSaver and Cincinnati Insurance have joined forces to fight phone-related distracted driving.

Here’s how it works: Cincinnati Insurance’s commercial policyholders can now enforce their cell phone driving policies by using LifeSaver’s fleet solution to measure and reduce cell phone distracted driving by its employees.

The stakes are high: Recent statistics about distracted driving are alarming. Conservative estimates show that phone-related distracted driving causes one in four car crashes. Yet a recent survey of insurance agents found that distracted driving was responsible for more than 25 percent of collisions on U.S. roadways.

The sobering fact is that drivers distracted by their phones are a growing threat to  safety. Left unchecked, distracted driving could quickly become one of the greatest road-safety threat of all time.

“Despite the rising costs of commercial auto insurance, businesses now have a clear path to reducing at-fault collisions and managing their insurance costs,” said Ted Chen, LifeSaver’s co-founder. “We applaud Cincinnati Insurance for taking a lead role in stemming the tide of the distracted driving epidemic. The LifeSaver solution enables Cincinnati policyholders to reduce risk with tools that encourage their employees practice safe driving when they’re on the job.”

Commercial policyholders face an increased risk, given the disproportionate number of miles and hours that their fleet drivers are on the road. Cincinnati Insurance is taking a proactive step to lower this risk by offering an innovative corporate/fleet safety option like LifeSaver to these policyholders at an affordable price.

“Through this program, we can provide a simple, cost-effective way for our commercial customers to address distracted driving, potentially reducing auto claims and, most importantly, saving lives. LifeSaver’s software-only approach is an innovative way to support our policyholders’ efforts to reduce risk and manage insurance costs,” commented Steve Spray, Cincinnati Insurance’s senior vice president of Commercial Insurance.

Cincinnati Insurance policyholders can learn more about this program by contacting their local independent agent or by simply visiting cinfin.com/lifesaver.

LifeSaver is a mobile software solution that provides individuals, governments and businesses with the tools they need to measure and reduce cell phone-related distracted driving, an epidemic responsible for more than 25 percent of U.S. auto collisions each year. LifeSaver’s data-driven solution has been validated by millions of miles of driving.
