Re: Insurance Rant
That little plug in thing under the dash is well worth the 6 months time. My auto insurance premium (and I don't drive that much) dropped by close to 2/3's.
Gather its like a small cell phone sort of thing that reports when you drive, how far you drive, time, speed, etc. A frequent history of high speed breaking is not a good thing. Driving between 11 PM and 3 AM apparently is also not a good thing unless there's a consistant history of such. (Shift work related.)
Don't know if it's still true, but a neighbor up in Washington was a State Patrol Officer. Told me that at 3 AM it was likely that 1 in 3 drivers were 'impared' to one degree or another.
HO also went down a bit but not paying anything like the premiums guys are posting above.
