In an effort to assist the local Portland community in promoting safe driving, an insurance provider sponsored two runners of the Rock n Roll Portland Half Marathon from Oregon Impact, a Clackamas-based organization dedicated to the prevention of impaired and distracted driving.
Travelers, provider of auto, home and business insurance, donated $75 for every mile completed by the Oregon Impact runners and presented the check at the Portland Waterfront Park finish line on Sunday. This partnership was the start of a series of partnerships with local charities across the country to raise awareness about distracted driving.
On-site at the Health & Fitness Expo at the Portland Expo Center last weekend, Travelers presented IntelliDrive Experience, a driving game that shows participants how to become safer drivers and can help consumers monitor their driving habits while also saving money. IntelliDrive is billed as an innovative way to price auto insurance that offers a discount at renewal for low-mileage vehicles, tracked via an easily inserted device.
