The Advantages of a Blind Spot Monitor

Here at Cawood Honda, we like to keep our customers informed. Many newer vehicles offer advanced features, such as cutting-edge driver-assist technologies, that provide you and your occupants with outstanding protection. A blind spot monitor is among one of the most popular driver-assist features available because it can reduce the risk of lane-change collisions.

There are some higher trims that feature a standard blind spot monitoring system, and the base and mid-level trims may offer it as an available feature. A blind spot monitoring system scans for vehicles that are approaching your blind spots and issues visual and/or audible warnings when one is detected.

Two recent studies have shown that these driver-assist features lessen the chance of lane-change crashes. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, blind spot monitors and lane keeping systems can significantly reduce the risk of fatalities that are caused from lane-change accidents.
