Newer models are equipped with advanced safety features that offer excellent protection. A blind spot monitor is a safety feature that is used by many drivers.

A blind spot monitor works by using sensors to detect vehicles that enter your blind spot zones. If a vehicle enters into your blind spot, then the system will warn you that it isn't safe to change lanes. Most blind spot monitors issue visual and audible alerts when a vehicle is detected in the driver's blind spot.

Drivers like blind-spot monitors because they enhance security and reduce the risk of a lane-change collision. According to the IIHS, blind spot monitoring systems reduce the likelihood of lane-change collisions by 14 percent. In addition, they also reduce injuries that occur during lane-change collisions by 23 percent.
