Blindspot Protection

Blind spots are a main cause of many side-swept accidents. In many cases, someone will come into another lane without seeing the person in the blind spot, and this can cause a collision. Blind spot protection is an innovative technology designed to be another point of reference when driving. It is a sensor that can tell you when someone is in your blind spot so that you can be aware even without looking.

Side Cameras

In addition to the blind spot detection, some vehicles now come equipped with side cameras that activate when the driver turns their blinker on. When the driver turns the blinker on to switch lanes, a video image of the vehicle’s blind spot will appear on the front screen so that the driver will be able to see if someone is in the blind spot.
