Press Release: More than Half of Major Driving Offenses Dismissed or Downgraded in Some States, Disguising Consumer Driving History


CHICAGO, May 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Approximately eight in 10 consumers have access to programs that can obscure their driving history, at times masking dangerous behaviors. A new study from TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) found these drivers have access to programs that remove or reduce their ticket violations, including DUIs, which may have adverse impacts on both insurers and the insured alike. The findings from the study, which observed 39 million violation records, were released today during the 2019 TransUnion Insurance Summit, attended by more than 150 insurance executives.
Insurers are missing the risk associated with the original violation when tickets are repeatedly downgraded or dismissed, leading to major impacts on insurance premiums for all consumers nationally. According to TransUnion’s study of court record violations, 57% of original major offenses in some states are unobservable by insurers due to dismissals or downgrades. The findings also showed that 41% of DUIs are likely to be dismissed, whereas driving without a seatbelt is dismissed only 10% of the time.“Interestingly our findings show that the more serious the violation is, the more likely it is to be dismissed or downgraded. When insurers aren’t presented with the full picture, this can compromise how well premiums align with risk,” said Mark McElroy, executive vice president and head of TransUnion’s insurance business unit. “This dynamic, in turn, impacts good drivers who then subsidize insurance premiums for risky drivers.”The study also determined that drivers with dismissed and downgraded violations are more likely to have a loss and have a 1.7 times higher loss cost than drivers with a guilty violation.  “At TransUnion, we are dedicated to drawing insights from the data to help create solutions that help businesses and consumers,” added McElroy. “This is why solutions that help mitigate risk and help provide accurate rates for applicants and policyholders are so important.”TransUnion’s DriverRiskSM
