Any ideas on a NY defensive driving course that I hack with a script or macro so I don't need to wait on each page?
I searched online but can't see anything recent. Thanks

Improv comedy online. Haven't done it in awhile but they just have a countdown  timer on each page and can't continue u til it finishes. So you can leave for awhile, overnight, etc., come back and answer the super simple questions as many times you need till you get it right

Looking over my post I wasn't very clear. I've done it before and it was very time consuming. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a script that will allow my to bypass the timer. Something like this http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=24211.msg389352#msg389352 that is still known to be working.

Progressive is offering me to enroll in the Snapshot Program. It is a device that will track my driving habits.
and can offer lower rates based on driving habits.

Did anyone try it? any cons?

Used it with Liberty mutual on two cars. Had it for 90 days. Got a 11% and 17% discount, respectively. Found that sharp acceleration and braking counted the most. I barely had any, but discount was less than the maximum 30% because of the many miles driven.

They say 3 things count
Night driving
Less then 30 miles per day
Braking

I should be good on all 3

Will report back

Why? It's only hard braking. If you go from 5mph to 3mph that's fine. Just can't brake from 20 to 15mph (for example) in less than a second. That's very hard in Lakewood where you have to short stop for every crazy driver that comes flying out of nowhere with no regard for the others on the road.

What's meant by Night Driving? And does speed count?

Speed doesn't count. Hard acceleration does count, for Liberty Mutual, at least.
