it'd be great if your the kinda driver who does EXACTLY the speed limit, only drives like 10 kms per week and have perfect driving habits constantly. in other words, the ideal driver

It records the mileage, which is a significant factor in insurance, the time of day that you travel, and the speed the vehicle is travelling at.

I want my insurance company to know how fast I drive ! ! !

well for most of us this would not be a good way of getting better insurance rates...but as stated earlier..the average driver isn't all about 'having fun' while driving...some ppl drive just because they have to

i think it wil lbe VERY beneficial for some...and not at all for others.

EXACTLY, everyone has the need for speed sometimes, excluding old people and a few others.

i just think that this is more like a tracking system and is infringing upon our rights as canadian/citizens according to the charter of rights.

Why is the gov getting soo involved in our daily lives man, this is not right anymorre, ****ing insurance companies, burn in hell.

yeah but you have the choice to not send that info...it's completely up to you whether you send the information the chip gathers[if i read correctly].

SO if the odd time u do speed...don't send it in that time...and when ur back to ur normal driving habits...etc etc
