A new policy for California motorists will be implemented in February of 2011. This new policy known as the ‘pay-as-you-drive’ policy is supposed to reward California citizens that ‘drive-less’. Driving less may prove to be a bit more of a challenge than most would think considering there aren’t a lot of major public transportation options (that wouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg).
Advantages of the ‘pay-as-you-drive’ policy include the following; less accidents, less asthma-related missed work days, less hospital visits, and less green house gas spewed into the atmosphere (making it a ‘green’ policy). All of these are obvious effects of less driving but we’ll see if the insurance policy will actually save money for customers or if it will serve as being inconvenient as well as costly. The costly part can come into play if you’re exceeding a certain mileage and that extra mileage will have you paying a supplement bill.
The ‘pay-as-you-drive’ policy is one that has been supported by environmentalists as well as big-name insurance companies but it’s effectiveness won’t be known till late February of next year. Will you take on the challenge to drive less to save money on your car insurance or do you feel safe with your current policy?
