You May Have To Watch How You Drive After All

As we all know, the Connecticut Supreme Court has held that a rental car company could not install GPS systems in cars to monitor speeding and charge $150 per violation.

But here is even newer technology that is bound to catch on among rental companies and even insurers.

Look, I'm anonymous, so I can freely admit that I speed.  But I also support the use of technology to improve the market.  Insurers already use crude tools to figure out who is a bad risk: gender, age, driving history, car model, car color, etc.  Why not let them use actual monitoring instead?  Why should you subsidize people who drive dangerously?
