TripMate’s Scoring Explained…
Our Smooth Driving score is a measure of your anticipation of traffic flow, taking into account how hard you accelerate and brake.
A good Smooth Driving score indicates that you are driving smoothly and safely throughout your journeys.
Our Mobile Use score measures mobile phone usage when you are behind the wheel.
TripMate tracks all instances of phone calls and any physical use of the phone that took place throughout your journey. Our Mobile Use score takes into account the mental distraction caused by being on your phone whilst driving and the physical distraction which measures how much you physically interact with your phone during your journey.
Our Speed score tracks the safety of the speed your car is travelling at throughout your journey.
If you are flowing with the traffic at an appropriate speed you will get a better score than if you are driving too fast or weaving through other traffic. TripMate does not use road speed limits to calculate the Speed score because we recognise these sometimes change and variable limits can apply.
Our Fatigue score assesses the additional risk you may be exposing yourself to by driving for an extended period of time. This score does not in any way measure how physically tired you are personally!
To reduce the risk it is advised that drivers take breaks during long journeys to avoid losing concentration or becoming fatigued.
Time of Day
Our Time of Day score considers the time of day or night that you are completing your journey.
This score has nothing to do with how you drive; instead it relates to the risk posed by driving at that particular time of the day. Be aware that late night journeys are up to 10 times riskier than driving during the daytime so driving during the night will impact your score.
