The Blue Box

You’re probably familiar with the black box.  Airplanes have a black box installed to collect valuable information in case the airplane crashes.  But have you heard of the blue box?  Auto insurance companies have started using blue boxes to track their customers’ driving habits.

The blue box plugs into the on-board diagnostic port of a car, and then wirelessly sends data to the driver’s insurance company.  The box can track vehicle speed, distance driven, how often the brakes are used and the time of day the vehicle is used.  Insurance companies can use the data to provide discounts to drivers who drive safely.

Currently, the blue box is being used in 19 states.  Hawaii is not one of these states.  What do you think?  If it was available to you, would you use the blue box?  Or, is it too much of a “big brother” watching over you?

    While not a big fan of the “big brother” concept, I’d use the blue box if it got me a car insurance discount!
