Making the Most of Your Vehicle’s Blind Spot Monitoring System

Blind spots monitors were created in an attempt to reduce or eliminate a common cause of automotive crashes, and they have been proven highly effective at warning drivers to avoid unsafe lane changes. The team at Century 3 Kia in Mifflin, PA offers the following tips on using your vehicle’s blind spot monitor.

A blind spot monitoring system consists of two or more sensors that are mounted on the rear and side panels of a vehicle. These sensors detect whether there are other vehicles that might not be directly visible to the driver in the immediate vicinity.

Alerts from the blind spot monitoring system are generally received by the driver via a visible warning on the mirror or an alarm that sounds. Some systems are designed to provide continual updates regarding vehicles in the blind spot while others only activate if the driver signals an upcoming lane change.
