The black box monitors a number of driving related factors, such as mileage, speed, the time of day and types of road you are travelling on.

It records any sudden impacts on the vehicle, monitoring any heavy braking or harsh acceleration. Please note that we are aware that occasionally you will have no alternative but to use your brakes severely to avoid an accident; occasional use of “hard” braking will not be scored against you. We are looking at a number of factors to give an overall assessment of driving.
