Progressive Snapshot

Anyone see the commercials for this thing?
http://www.progressive.com/auto/snapshot-discount.aspx

It's a device you plug into your diagnostic port and it keeps track of how you drive..then Progressive charges you accordingly. I guess if you're extremely anal about driving slow (below the speedlimit) and boring you could save a few $$. But if you ever get in an emergency you're screwed. Kinda like those "pay as you go" cellphones. Decent if you never use them..but if you have to call half of your family because of a major emergency you're going to be paying out the ass.
They SAY your rate won't go up..but I got a feeling that's a bunch of BS. If you drive like a maniac they'll find a way to make you pay more.

I don't think it would work well for anyone here.

Yeah, there has to be some underhanded bit to this thing that will have Progressive charging people more.

I still wanna know what they're supposedly doing with this info if they're not using it to 'raise rates'(which I still think is a load of BS).
