Program designed to keep teens safe on the road
Teensurance includes online tools based on an on-board GPS and notification technology called the Safety Beacon.
St. Angel Agency and Safeco (NYSE: SAF) have announced the availability of TeensuranceTM powered by Safeco, a new product that helps Rockford-area families protect their teen drivers as they gain experience and build trust.
Teensurance includes a set of online tools based on an on-board GPS and notification technology called the Safety BeaconTM, and provides real-world services to give parents peace of mind and help keep teens safe on the road. This new bundle of tools enables families to take proactive steps to monitor their teens behavior behind the wheel. Parents can set speed, distance and curfew limitations, and the tools afford parents access to their teens vehicles with real-time notification so they will know if their teen drivers are in danger. With Teensurance, parents and teens can also:
Set safe driving zones to gradually ease new drivers into the driving scene as they gain experience;
Unlock a car door remotely, in seconds, using a simple code;
Access roadside assistance, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in case of car trouble;
Gain insight into teen driving attitudes via the TeenDash survey; and
Download a parent/teen contract and educational materials.
Teensurance is a proactive solution to help parents around the Rockford area keep their families safe on the road, and the first in a series of Safeco innovations that push beyond traditional insurance to impact our customers on a broad scale, said Jasper St. Angel, an insurance producer for St. Angel Agency.
Before [Teensurance], parents had to rely on hope and worry to mitigate this stressful time, St. Angel added. Now, parents have the ability to guide frank conversations about what is acceptable behind the wheel, as well as the peace of mind that comes with knowing what actually happens on the road.
Teensurance is available to customers with Safeco auto insurance policies. Those customers are eligible to receive the product for a limited time introductory price of $14.99 per month. The price includes free installation of the Safety Beacon, and is guaranteed for two years.
