AIG Singapore has launched a new intelligent driving mobile app, AIG On the Go. The telematics-based app gives a score for a driver’s performance every time they get behind the wheel. Factors like acceleration, braking, cornering and speed are taken into account then a score is awarded along with useful driving tips on how to improve their score.
Motorists can use the scores to reduce their AIG Singapore car insurance premiums. Safe drivers with high scores, regardless of whether they are new or existing customers with AIG Singapore, will be rewarded with discounts of up to 15 per cent off their annual AIG Singapore car insurance premiums. The safer the driver, the bigger the savings.
AIG Singapore is running two challenges for the launch of this new app. First is to find the driver with the highest score. The driver will be crowned AIG Singapore’s “Best Driver in Singapore” and win prizes worth S$10,000, including free fuel for one year valued at S$5,000, car spa vouchers worth S$2,000 and a customised S$3,000 AIG Singapore CashCard. This contest runs from now until 30th June 2017.
The second is aimed at breaking down driving stereotypes. Participants cans also enter the “Men Vs Women – Who are the Safer Drivers” team contest. Running from now to 30 April 2017, the competition pits male and female drivers against one another, and will end the debate once and for all about which gender has the better drivers in Singapore.
According to the latest Traffic Police data, Annual Road Traffic Situation 2016, injury accidents rose from 8,058 cases in 2015 to 8,277 incidents last year. The increase of 2.7 per cent reflected a continued upward trend over the last four years.
Other features of the AIG On the Go application include roadside assistance, directions to workshops and a parental control function – all tools to help keep drivers safe.
AIG Singapore’s survey in 2015 showed that younger drivers are more likely to exhibit reckless behaviour on the road compared to older drivers. The app includes a parental control feature that is designed to enable parents to track their children’s driving behaviour. The survey also found that almost 70 per cent of Singapore drivers would consider installing a telematics device in return for lower car insurance premiums,
AIG On the Go is part of AIG Singapore’s mission to keep Singapore road users safe. In 2015, AIG Singapore launched a road safety programme for pre-schoolers to cultivate a generation of safer road users with good road safety habits. The programme was expanded in 2016 in partnership with the Traffic Police, and to date, has educated close to 4,000 pre-schoolers about road safety. Some 900 more preschoolers will benefit from the programme in 2017.
Globally, AIG is part of Together for Safer Roads, the first-ever global coalition of private sector companies that uses its members’ data, technology and networks to promote safer roads and vehicles.
