Focused driving by the numbers
We believe in the power of data.
It fuels the actions we take and empowers safer driving. But we also know data can tell a good story. A few of our favorites are below.
Drivers use their phones 17 times every 100 miles
Imagine checking your phone 17 times in a movie theater. How disruptive would that be? Now add the responsibility of operating a 4,000 lb force going 60 MPH.
Drivers by name
Susan’s in the spotlight
We couldn’t be more proud. Susans were the most focused drivers in 2018.
Drivers by car make
We believe in you. To Infiniti and beyond.
But try to be a little more savvy like Saab. Saab drivers are about 27% more focused than Infiniti drivers.
Drivers by urbanicity
Take a cue from country living
Slow and steady saves the most. Drivers in rural communities are the least distracted—they use their phones 15 times per 100 miles. We could all improve, but especially city dwellers, who use their phones 20% more.
Drivers by state
A focused state of mind
Utah leads the nation in focused driving. Utahns use their phones 8 fewer times per 100 miles than Marylanders. Must be all those mountains.
Drivers by zodiac sign
Eyes on the road. Not in the stars.
An excellent car insurance rate is in your future. It turns out that birthdate doesn’t really impact focused driving. 17 remains the average number of times drivers of all signs use their phones.
