How Insurers can Leverage Dangerous Intersections Information

Although accidents can happen anywhere, there are locations which account for a larger share. This can be due to traffic density, poorly designed roads or other factors. Police departments, departments of transportation and others maintain databases of these dangerous intersections and other problematic locations. Knowing and leverage this information can be of immense value to auto insurers.

Insight on dangerous intersection can help auto insurers reduce risk

Telematics programs can also aggregate further details, including density details, driving behaviour, driving intention and more.

Insurers are already leveraging location information to determine risk based on where drivers live (garaging). With greater information, insurer can further model their risk and coach drivers to reduce claims.
