How are scores, unsafe actions, and driving snapshot data determined for my kids' trips and drives?

Scores range between a score of 0 and 100 (a “perfect drive”). Trips with scores of 70 and below are labeled “unsafe.” Scores are determined based on the total mileage of the trip, and the frequency of the following factors:

  • Phone interaction: Handling the phone or touching the phone’s screen while driving. Note: phone interactions will only show on ‘trip details’ if the individual is detected to be a “Driver” of the car, not a passenger. 
  • Speeding: Vehicle is moving at a speed above the posted limit for 15+ seconds.
    •  Note: When a vehicle is traveling for at least 15 seconds at a speed of more than 10mph above the speed limit in a speed limit zone of 30mph or less, or 20 miles or more above the limit when the sped limit is more than 30mph,  the section of the route where speeding occurred will be red.
  • Hard turn: A sharp change of direction to the right or left.
  • Hard break: A sudden, rapid reduction in speed of 7mph or more in a 1 second period. 
  • Rapid acceleration: A dangerously rapid reduction in speed of 7mph or more in 1 second.
  • Late night driving: Driving activity late at night (between the hours of 12:00am and 4:00am in your time zone) can be considered risky and is taken into account when scoring the safety of a trip. 

By looking at each trip’s details, you can see exactly where each type of unsafe action occurred on the route, and what type of actions occurred there. Generally speaking, a higher frequency of unsafe actions on a shorter trip will result in lower scores. For example, if a trip had the same 5 unsafe actions on a trip that is a mile long vs. 10 miles long, the shorter trip will have the lower score.

*Driving reports require mobile data or a WiFi connection, and access to sensory and motion data from cell phone to utilize safety features including family location sharing and driving alerts and reports. Messaging and data rates and other terms may apply.
