As it turned out, it was very much the other way. The results were very surprising, to say the least. Investigators wondered...and found that GEICO had ordered all employees, on the clock, to fill out the written surveys, apparently in front of supervisory personnel, actively supporting the Radar issue, and turn them in to be mailed. The report apparently also found that GEICO employees were encouraged to send in additional fictional responses, also favoring the radar use. (I guess 60 Minutes found that a multitude of responses all came from the same return address, etc, and that put them on to the whole thing. Not even very clever.)
Supposedly several employees were terminated for refusing to participate. Initially GEICO management denied this completely, but there were too many internal whistleblowers, and ultimately it was admitted, with traffic safety as the justification.
Another 60 minutes expose, but something to consider, when the insurance company actively campaigns for things that will increase its own revenues, at the expense of its clients.
I don't have Geico insurance, never had it, and won't in the future. Been with the same insurer since 1974, and happy there.
