MetLife rewards cautious teens
October 2, 2008 · Updated 6:59 PM
MetLife Auto & Home now rewards its teen auto insurance
customers in Washington with $50 for each year that they drive with no
accidents, claims or violations. The incentive is provided through the company's
Drive Safe and Cash In portion of its Teens on the Road to Safety program.
The program also includes an optional component called Sunday
Drive where teens can earn a $100 U.S. Savings Bond for logging 20 drives
with a parent or guardian in the co-pilot seat.
"This is our way of trying to establish parental influence on the
teen's driving and to acquaint parents with their child's driving habits,"
said Catherine Rein, president of MetLife Auto & Home.
MetLife is also offering a guide book titled "Teaching Your Teens
to Drive (Without Driving Each Other Crazy)." The free 16-page booklet
is available by calling 1-800-MET-LIFE.
