MetLife Auto & Home Unveils Teen Driving Program to 11 States

December 1, 2005

To help save lives and encourage good driving habits during teens’ first years on the road, MetLife Auto & Home is introducing the company’s “Teens on the Road to Safety” program to customers in 11 states: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. The program offers cash incentives and savings bonds for simply developing safe driving techniques.

Two components of the company’s “Teens on the Road to Safety” program provide these financial incentives. The first, “Drive Safe and Cash In,” offers teens between the ages of 16-19 a chance to earn $50 each year they drive with no accidents, claims, or violations. It also encourages them to drive safely, buckle up, and never drink and drive.

Another component, called “Sunday Drive,” offers teens the opportunity to earn a $100 US Savings Bond for logging 20 drives with a parent or guardian in the co-pilot seat. Teens insured by MetLife Auto & Home in these 11 states can take advantage of the program as their auto policies renew.

In addition to the “Drive Safe and Cash In” program, MetLife Auto & Home is encouraging safer driving habits and greater parental influence for all teens. The company is offering for free a step-by-step guide called “Teaching Your Teens to Drive (Without Driving Each Other Crazy),” and a video entitled “Young Drivers, the High-Risk Years.” Both are available nationally by calling 1-800-MET-LIFE.

“MetLife Auto & Home said it is dedicated to reversing the deadly trend of more than 3,500 teens losing their lives on America’s roadways each year,” said MetLife Auto & Home President Bill Mullaney. “This is our way of trying to remind teens to drive with utmost caution, and to support parental influence on teens’ driving habits.”

With these recent additions, MetLife Auto & Home now offers the cash award and savings bond programs for teen drivers on its auto policies in 34 states. Informational pieces to help parents of teens are available free to everyone countrywide.
