In KnowYourDrive, your score is a measure of how safely you drive.
Total Hours Driven: How many hours you generally drive. While we know it’s hard to change, the more you drive the more you’re at risk of an accident.
Time of the Day: How much you drive during times when the road is less safe, such as during evening or late night.
Sudden Braking: How often you’re stopping quickly. This is an indicator of not anticipating and following other cars too closely.
High Speed: How often you exceed the speed of 130 km/hr. (approx. 80 mph). Higher speed reduces the time you have to respond behind the wheel.
Quick Acceleration: How often you accelerate quickly. Frequent sudden acceleration is generally an indicator of risky driving.
Low Speed: How often you drive below the speed of 45 mph. While lower speed is generally considered safer, it also signifies driving in more densely populated or congested areas.
Distracted Driving: (Not used in calculating Total Score) How often you use your phone while driving. Both phone use in your hand and hands free phone calls count. Passive use of music, navigation apps, etc. doesn’t count.
