SGI seeking input on safe driving discount programs
Oct. 15, 2012
SGI is asking for feedback from customers on the Safe Driver Recognition and Business Recognition programs.
The Safe Driver Recognition (SDR) program rewards drivers with safe driving records with a discount of up to 20 per cent on their vehicle insurance, while drivers with a negative safety rating are assessed financial penalties. Business Recognition (BR) is a similar program for commercial vehicles, with business owners potentially getting a discount or a surcharge on their vehicle insurance depending on their claims experience.
“SGI wants to ensure these programs continue to be effective and relevant for the people of Saskatchewan, and the best way to find that out is to ask,” said SGI President and CEO Andrew Cartmell. “Customer feedback is very valuable and will help shape these programs going forward.”
Customers are asked to share their thoughts on any and all aspects of the SDR and BR programs, including whether the discount, penalty and surcharge levels are adequate; if the point values assigned to at-fault collisions and traffic violations are appropriate; if the appeal process is effective, etc.
Interested parties can provide feedback from now until Nov. 15, 2012, through an online survey at www.sgi.sk.ca/afcoveragereview, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone toll free at 1-877-775-6024.
The Safe Driver Recognition program was launched in 2002, with Business Recognition following in 2004.
