What are the Advantages of a Blind Spot Monitor?

Our Pitre Kia of Las Cruces team likes to share helpful information about our vehicles with Las Cruces consumers. A blind spot monitor is a innovative safety feature that offers outstanding protection to drivers and passengers. Let's find out more about a blind spot monitor.

A blind spot monitor uses technologies, such as cameras, sensors, and radars, to look out for vehicles in your blind spots. When this feature detects a vehicle approaching, it will issue visual and audible warnings. Base and mid-level trims may offer a blind spot monitor as an available feature, and many higher trims come standard with a blind spot monitor.

Having a blind spot monitor in your vehicle can significantly reduce the risk of collisions and injuries caused by collisions. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found, if a blind spot monitor was in every vehicle in 2015, then it may have reduced lane-change collisions by 85,000 and injuries caused by lane-change accidents by 55,000.
