NEWARK, N.J. - One auto insurance company is offering Garden State motorists discounts of up to 60 percent if they install a high-tech monitoring device.
The wireless devices will tell Progressive how many miles are driven, how fast people accelerate and hit the brakes.
Under the pay-as-you-drive concept, good drivers will get discounts and lead foots could face surcharges as high as 9 percent.
New Jersey will be the fifth state to offer the option.
Progressive says in other states, about one-third of the company's customers have enrolled. They're saving about 10 to 15 percent.
The program will begin Aug. 8.
