The Value of Blind Spot Monitors

The IIHS completed two studies that pointed out the value of blind spot monitors. Blind spots refer to areas outside a driver's visibility range. Blind spot monitors send alerts to assist drivers in avoiding crashes when changing lanes. The IIHS' analysis of the two studies revealed the monitors could reduce accidents and collisions by significant percentages. Shockingly, the studies also showed drivers turn off the alerts with unfortunate frequency.

Blind spot monitors should stay on at all times. The purpose of these technological devices is to send alerts about vehicles and objects out of the driver's eyesight. The alerts may prevent an ill-advised lane change, which prevents an accident.

Even a seemingly minor accident may come with severe consequences. How do you know you won't end up in a lawsuit over a "little" collision? You don't.
