The driver with the biggest potential Snapshot savings percentage wins the “Best Driver Ever” title. And while we hope this peacefully ends “Who’s best?” debates in households across the country, it’s possible that people who get the biggest savings—and the Best Driver Ever title—in their house did so because they didn’t drive at all, not only because they had smooth moves. But, hey … sometimes the safest driving is no driving!
It’s updated daily, so check back every morning to see your latest potential savings and driving details.
