What is A Blind-Spot Monitor?

Blind spot monitors are a helpful form of technology in a lot of newer vehicles. These monitors alert a driver when a car has entered their blind spot. They help prevent crashes caused by lane drifting or changing lanes when it is not safe.

Blind spot technology is a very popular safety feature available in new cars. It typically includes a small light on the car's side view mirrors that activates when another vehicle enters the blind spot. Some blind spot monitors make noises to alert the driver, which can some find annoying. Research shows that, in 2015, this type of technology had the ability to prevent 85,000 car crashes and 55,000 injuries.

Although this technology is extremely beneficial and has been known to help prevent crashes, it isn't a standard feature in all new cars. Many consumers will have to pay extra to get blind spot detection added to their car. You can visit Team Kia of Bend in Bend, OR to check out cars equipped with blind spot monitoring technology.
