Drivers who telecommute or who keep their mileage to a minimum can soon opt to sign up for insurance plans that offer savings for driving less. California Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner announced yesterday that two insurance providers, State Farm and the Automobile Club of Southern California, will implement new pay-as-you-drive insurance plans effective February 2011.

Using verified mileage, the new plans will better allow insurance providers to offer premiums based on more accurate risk; the less distance you cover behind the wheel, the less of a risk you have for being involved in an accident.
