Why is Progressive Insurance LYING about their spy devices?
Cannonfire - April 09, 2012
Since when has it become acceptable for television commercials to tell outright lies? I was under the impression that deceptive advertising was illegal.
You know about Progressive Insurance. That’s the company whose TV ads feature a lovely lady wearing a white uniform and blindingly red lipstick. The folks at Progressive are pushing a device called Snapshot which plugs into your car’s steering column and sends the company information about your driving habits. If you practice good habits, you get a substantial discount.
The question is: How much info are you sending to them? Are they tracking your location via GPS? Are they keeping track of how fast you go?
