Don't fall for this BS.

I wanted to see if there was an alternative to my GEICO pricing.

So I switched to Progressive and wanted to take advantage of every discount available.  Snapshot is a device that you plug in under your dashboard.  It measures miles driven, timed traveled, maximum speed, hard braking, etc.

The very first trip I went around the block to do some shopping.  Drove like an old lady on the way to church.  It registered a "hard braking" incident.  Completely ridiculous. 

Wifey takes her car out and got two hard braking incidents.

Apparently if your speed reduces 7mph or more in one second then a "hard braking" incident is recorded.  So if an azzhole cuts you off and you have to brake then "it's your fault" for hard breaking.  If a kid runs into the road and you have to stop quickly "it's your fault" because you prevented a death.

CORPORATE FUKKS 

GET YOUR HANDS OUT OF MY POCKETS

Progressive...  You're FIRED.

Corporate exorbitant remorseless horsheshittt
Forced in and torn to bits your orfice isn't normal it's worn and ripped
War it's sick
And it takes place everyday
Maybe not on a newspaper page but just the same it changes fate
Bottom line ya got robbed blind
Some guy in an opulent tie's got your bottom his cocck inside
Plus they mock you sly
On the tricky
Treacherous and prickly invested in your thinking
Or lack thereof
Prepare your derrière here comes a hairy fucck......

Google "progressive insurance class action lawsuit" and you'll be astounded at the BS these scumbags have pulled on their own customers.

My own fault.  Should have done more extensive research before I switched insurance carriers.

 I hate insurance companies.........I'm fortunate to not have had to use mine, but I've heard some nightmare stories. A buddy got t-boned in an intersection.....other guy ran a stop sign & it wasn't a 4-way stop. Plainly not his fault & there were witnesses. Fortunately, he wasn't hurt. The opposing insurance co. tried to assess 25% of the blame on my buddy. It took months, up until he started legal proceedings, before they finally settled.

I had Progressive and 1 night I had a run-in with a drunken whitetail.Well Progressive said thank-you very much and heres a check and we don't want to ever Insure you again.I don't like self-described progressive Co.,I don't like NPR(National Progressive Radio),PBS(Progressive Broadcast System)and Hillary loves being called a Progressive(enough said). Along with the Progressive Income Tax,every one of them thinks it knows better then You and wants your $.

Insurance is the only thing you buy but hope to never use.

Just think about that a minute.

If you're a small business owner, property owner, home owner, multiple auto driver, you will easily spend $50K each year on insurance.

And in the end these Corporate Fukks will fight you over every dollar.

i used to work for them, best company to work for or be insured for, they really take care of their members, I'm not one for plugs but you don't have insurance until you have USAA.

I use dairy land, my agent recommended it for low as possible rates to cover Maine's mandatory insurance requirements. I pay 35-40 a month for liability and comprehension, if i add collision to this it goes up to 60 I have driven 26 years without an at fault accident, so every penny i gave these people over the years they have.

anyone spending over 15 million on an advertising budget per month has got to get that from somewhere....
