Mercury Insurance has announced that its usage-based auto insurance app is now available to drivers in Oklahoma.
The MercuryGO app provides in-app advice to help users become safer drivers, with added features including a sharing option for families, which allows all participating drivers to see which family member is the safest, and for parents to receive real-time feedback about their teen’s driving behavior.

In a statement, Mercury said that auto insurance policyholders who enroll to use the app will receive a 5% participation discount, while teen drivers will receive up to a 10% discount.
“Then, when MercuryGO customers renew their policies, they could receive a discount of up to 40%, depending upon their driving score,” the insurer said in its statement.
“Driving safety is a very important issue for Mercury and we continually look for ways to help educate drivers of all ages on the importance of being alert behind the wheel, while also equipping them with the skills to avoid potentially dangerous driving behaviors,” said Sherrie Schreck, customer service project manager at Mercury Insurance. “Most auto collisions are preventable, so MercuryGO is a simple way to help keep drivers focused on their main task and, as a result, reduce fatalities and serious injuries. Plus, they could also end up saving a lot of money with this program.”
