Only the start of what? People getting cheaper insurance by offering to be monitored to PROVE they are safe drivers?

It's been happening for years! Insurance companies say 'if you can prove your no ...

And don't you think this is only the start? I can tell you now I wouldn't want one fitted to my car and that's not because I break the law or not! Or would you like to see this expanded? Because it wi ...

But they might face big problems if they have an accident while the signal is blocked!

It can be as simple as just a flip of a switch

Two things, firstly, the telematics box is hooked into the car's OBDII information network (all cars since 2001 have them) so that will only stop the GPS data. And secondly, if that happens often, the ...

I can't see this ever working, it is to easy to block a GPS signal. And phone signal for that matter. So when a youngster wants to break the law by driving fast and they will, they will temporally blo ...

And you know what's ironical about that, is nearly twice as many people die from MRSA every year then on the roads of Britain!

Shame they can't seem fit to spend that sort of cash in that area!!
