Progressive thinks so. That's why every time I make what I think is a normal stop in my car, the Snapshot device beeps at me for making a "hard stop." So now I'm dragging my stops out much longer, ending up right on the bumper of the car in front of me, or further out into the intersections. I'm also blowing through yellow lights much later, for fear of getting beeped at. It does not seem safer to me. I'd rather ride with someone that can stop on a dime.
