I think the device is optional isn't it? For example, if you wanted to save on insurance then you could opt to get this snapshot device and would agree to its terms of usage... I do however fear that this will become more heavily used by many more auto-insurance companies and they will rationalize a slight going over the speed limit as reason to raise your premium...hopefully it wont get to that so lets hope people aren't stupid enough to opt in to such a thing that could end up screwing them over in the long run.
