I guess that's the point though; driving in heavy traffic = higher accident risk = smaller discount.

The main difference is the Progressive snapshot is temporary and voluntary, while Onstar is built into every vehicle. On a personal note, I don't like all of this extra surveillance, but I don't see it as something worth fighting. You can't stop progress and it's only going to get more intrusive as time goes on.
I'm thinking get a discount by using a different company. ;)
