1. A driving evaluation computing device comprisinga processing unit comprising a processor;

  • a memory unit; and

    a wireless receiver, wherein the driving evaluation computing device is configured to;

    receive a first vehicle operational data of a first vehicle collected by a first vehicle data acquiring component over a first period of time, wherein the first vehicle operation data comprises vehicle speed and wherein the first vehicle data acquiring component comprises a mobile telephone of a vehicle driver;

    determine a first vehicle operation factor from the first vehicle operational data, wherein the first vehicle operation factor comprises vehicle acceleration determined from the vehicle speed;

    receive, via the wireless receiver, a second vehicle operational data of the first vehicle collected by a second vehicle data acquiring component over the first period of time, wherein the second vehicle data acquiring component comprises an on board diagnostic (OBD) of the first vehicle or a GPS of the first vehicle and is distinct from the first vehicle data acquiring component, and wherein the second vehicle operational data comprises vehicle speed and is distinct from the first vehicle operational data;

    determine a second vehicle operation factor from the second vehicle operational data, wherein the second vehicle operation factor comprises vehicle acceleration;

    compare the first vehicle operation factor to the second vehicle operational factor and determine whether the first vehicle operation factor is accurate using the comparison between the first and second vehicle operation factors;

    responsive to a determination that the first vehicle operation factor is accurate;

    calculate a driver safety rating using the first vehicle operation factor; and

    determine whether the first vehicle operation factor deviates from an operational threshold factor;

    record, in a driver profile associated with the first vehicle, the driver safety rating, wherein the driver profile is stored in a driver profile database; and

    record, in the driver profile and responsive to a determination that the first vehicle operation factor deviates from the operation threshold factor, a deviation event.
