NEWS RELEASE - June 1, 2008


Seattle, WA --

Agents now can offer the company's groundbreaking Teensurance™ powered by Safeco® product to customers who are not insured with Safeco.  Teensurance is unique because it bundles an entire suite of technology and services designed to create a safer environment for young drivers, while offering new levels of comfort for parents.  Using a GPS-based device – the Safety Beacon™ – and online tools to reinforce good driving habits, Teensurance gives parents tangible assurance about their teens' driving behavior by delivering real-time notifications.  Registered subscribers can access a secure Web portal with materials and services to help them establish a safe driving plan with their teens.  Beyond its tangible benefits, Teensurance enhances the most important parenting tool: communication.  By using this safety program, parents and their teens are encouraged to enter into an ongoing dialogue about good driving habits.

The program provides benefits for both sides of the dialogue.  Parents and their teens can agree on the speed, distance, location and curfew limitations.  Notification is transmitted in real time to parents’ computers, home phones, cell phones or other mobile devices when limits are exceeded

For teens, there is 24/7 roadside assistance and, if they lock their keys in the car (and it has automatic door locks) they can use their mobile phone to remotely unlock the vehicle.  Most important, teens can prove to their parents they drive responsibly and possibly gain additional driving privileges.

Research shows that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of death for teens in the
United States.  One of the most stressful times for parents is when their children begin driving.

New subscribers have access to Teensurance’s online services and roadside assistance for a limited-time introductory price of $14.99 a month.  This price is guaranteed for two years and includes free installation of the Safety Beacon into the teen’s car.

Only parents and their teens can access the driving information gathered through the Safety Beacon.  Individual driver information is not available to Safeco and will not be used to calculate individual rates.  However, in most states, Teensurance subscribers who also insure their automobiles with Safeco receive a 15-percent discount off their young driver's rate.  The discount is 10 percent in
Pennsylvania.  The discount is not available in New Hampshire or Kansas.

Teensurance is the first in a series of new products and services Safeco’s innovative research and development lab,
Open Seas, will bring to market.  The company plans to provide a series of solutions, based on customer needs, beyond traditional insurance products.
