    Default "Smart boxes" for insurance?

    Anyone seen this, think Admiral have just started advertising theres, measures speed, breaking and even g-force, and can help adjust you premiums according to driving style...

    Anyone brave enough to have one? Lol

    Won't be long before these end up compulsory (you said critch 'Big Brother'). Spare your freedom whilst you can m8 and pay the extra money as normal.

    Smart boxes - pah!

    They're not that smart because they do not who the driver is. Say your dad/mum/sister/brother/AN Other borrowed the car one evening and drove it like it was stolen. Who takes the rap for it and subsequently their premium rises the following year - the person who's car it is but wasn't even driving it.
