Hi Mindy, congratulations to you. I think I've seen you in the Miami and Grand Rapids finals. I haven't had a chance to look at your proposal yet but it looks like you're an insurance company, yes? We are a transportation company that's been piloting for 2 years in the Grand Rapids area and had lots of successes, and even a few failures. I've been looking at all the finalists tonight and there is some amazing ideas out there, it's good to be part of this group.
You are correct about the human drivers. But I believe there are other factors that could contribute to increased insurance. For example, the cost of technology if damaged or vandalized. 100's of Billions have been poured into this technology. It is expensive and that will be a major factor when considering replacement costs. So, The cost of the vehicle if an accident occurs within road drive time as a factor.. and lawsuits that are filed due to technology that fails and things that we cant even predict.. But, it would be great if your prediction that taking human drivers out of the car would lower rates. At the end of the day, my personal opinion is more needs to be done then just take the driver out of the vehicle, especially in Michigan.
