I might have mentioned that in order to get insurance on the Picasso for Jr Womble I had to fit a "black box" to the car.
So far Jr Womble has driven about 10 miles in the car with said Balck box and Ive done about 150.
Today I was looking at my "scores" and have come to the conclusion its utter bollocks.
Motorway* speeds on the M61 plus some stop start traffic and darting through the M61 interchange scores 96% and green lights across the board...
Yet going to pick my wife up after an evening on the booze ( her not me) at a friends house a journey of about half a mile...
47% - Marked down for the fact it was after midnight and "accelerating / braking suddenly" which is tosh as I kept to the 20 limit there was fuck all else on the road, I had one mini roundabout and a cul de sac to negotiate.
Note the road risk..... This is the risk that that particular stretch of road carries.
Now look at the return journey. On the EXACT SAME stretch of road.
Poor??? How can the exact same stretch of road be good then 5 minutes later become poor?
Privilege insurance black box is quite frankly utter bollocks.
My journey to work at 07.00hrs usually scores 90-96% my journey home at 16.30hrs scores 70% and gets marked down on the slow stop start traffic on Strand Road. I kind of get that - stop start increases the risk of a low speed bump and whiplash claim. But there are plenty of other things that it just seems to ignore totally.
I feel for the youth of today trying to learn how to drive i really do.
