In the chase for lower rates, consumers are exhibiting more willingness to share driving data with their insurers, according to CCC Information Services, Inc.‘s Crash Course report. Propelling some of this interest is the fact that many drove fewer miles during the past year due to the pandemic.

The study found 54% of drivers are now comfortable sharing information on miles driven for pricing, compared with 41% in 2019. Further, nearly 60% said they are comfortable sharing distracted driving details, while almost half would reveal speed and location data, CCC found.
