A New Cell Phone Safety Option
Good2Go Auto Insurance® introduces its NEWEST Cell Phone Safety Option – The Good2Go Auto Insurance LifeSaver app – our first text blocking mobile app that may save you 5% on your auto insurance when you choose not to text and drive.
We want you driving legal for less1, and we also want to help you stay safe on the roads. The Good2Go Auto Insurance Life Saver app is our NEWEST way to save on your car insurance.
By choosing to drive without texting, Good2Go Auto Insurance Cell Phone Safety Discount gives you 5% off your bodily injury, property damage, and collision coverage per vehicle. To qualify for the discount, you must install the Good2Go Auto Insurance LifeSaver app or one of the other approved text blocking devices listed below.
How does the Good2Go LifeSaver App work?
It is a FREE app that policyholders can install on their iPhone or Android phone. It runs silently in the background and automatically presents a block on Android and deterring “Keep your eyes on the road” notification on an iPhone while the car is in motion.
It is transparent to the driver when he/she is not driving, and when driving enables the driver to make an emergency call or turn off the device with the “Passenger Unlock” button.
The Good2Go Auto Insurance LifeSaver app allows the driver to receive hands-free calls, use maps/navigation, and listen to music while driving if the app is set-up completely before driving and used with the phone passcode locked. The LifeSaver app discourages the use of all other apps, unless the driver becomes a passenger and clicks the “Passenger Unlock” button.
What are the benefits of the Life Saver App?
Teenagers and young adults are more likely to text and drive when behind the wheel, which has grave consequences. Here are some disturbing texting and driving statistics:
- You are two times more likely to crash or near-crash your car when you text and drive.2
- Half of all U.S. high school students text or send emails while driving.3
- In 2011, 1,000 deaths and 24,000 injuries involved the use of a cell phone.4
- Parents of driving age children will receive help from this app. It helps by protecting their young driver when they are on the road, and has the benefit of earning a discount on their car insurance.
How do I get the discount?
Once you become a Good2Go Auto Insurance direct policyholder, you will receive an email with instructions on how to download your Good2Go Auto Insurance LifeSaver and set-up your Driver Portal. Or, you have the option of installing a text blocking device in your vehicle and provide Good2Go Auto Insurance with a copy of your receipt via fax, email, or postal service.
What are text blocking devices?
Text blocking devices are pieces of equipment that prevent the use of distracting cell phone functions while the vehicle is in motion. They block text messages, email, and Internet browsing, but may also include other distracting mobile applications. The devices allow for incoming and outgoing phone calls, as well as multiple hands-free options, depending on the device. They typically only affect the driver’s cell phone, allowing other passengers to use their cell phones. Emergency features such as 911 are always available.
You must make sure that the device you are using is a text blocker and not a cell phone blocker, jammer, or scrambler. Cell phone blockers, jammers, and scramblers are illegal because they send out disruptive radio frequencies that block all calls from all cell phones in the area including law enforcement and emergency services.
What text blocking devices can I use?
In addition to our NEWEST Good2Go Auto Insurance LifeSaver app, here is a list of a few qualifying text blocker devices that you can buy, however, you are not limited to the ones listed below:
