iKube Black Box Insurance Encourages Safe Driving

It's an unfortunate fact of life that young drivers are more likely to be in a car accident and have potentially more expensive young drivers insurance claims than that of an older, more experienced driver.

The reasons are fairly obvious when you look at why this might be:


Inexperience behind the wheel

If you're a young driver, between the ages of 17 - 25, the likelihood is you haven't been driving for very long... or maybe you've just passed your test?

It's simply a case of building up that experience on the road - get out there and practice, practice, practice! The more experience you have and, as long as you drive conscientiously and with regard for others, then there is no reason why you should be involved in an accident... in theory at least.


Distractions whilst driving

Being a young person in the modern age is tough - there are so many distractions. Whether it's the fit girl in the little dress walking down the street on a hot summer's day or your mates shouting at you to change the track on the iPod. All of these things can cause an accident - which is why it's important to always keep your eyes on the road whilst driving.


Risk Takers

Aside from distractions and inexperience, 17 – 25 year olds tend to take more risks whilst driving, which is why they tend to see relatively high young drivers insurance premiums. However, considering a black box insurance policy could be the perfect solution to this problem.

Did you know that iKube can offer you up to 25% discount when you take out a black box insurance policy? In addition to this, taking out a black box insurance policy encourages you to be a better driver as iKube can offer you up to 40% discount on your car insurance when it comes around to renewing your policy.

The black box can measure a variety of factors such as speed, mileage, hard braking and harsh acceleration, amongst other things. So, as long as you drive sensibly and with care you could get a hefty discount at renewal.
