Progressive Insurance Co.’s Snapshot Program is the focus of a proposed class action lawsuit filed in Ohio district court. According to the 13-page complaint, the Snapshot device that drivers plug directly into their cars to collect data for the purpose of calculating insurance rates is defective to the extent that it may significantly damage the user’s vehicle. “In fact,” the suit alleges, “the Snapshot Device destroys automobile batteries and damages automobile electrical systems, rending the vehicles and their component parts either totally unusable or diminished in value.”
