How a Blind Spot Monitoring System Can Help You Stay Safe

At MINI of Burlington in Shelburne, VT, our team works diligently to keep our consumers informed about the features that are available with our models. The automotive industry has developed safety features that are innovative and provide drivers and passengers with exceptional protection.

One of the most popular safety features that is available with newer vehicles is a Blind Spot Monitor. Roughly 57% of newer models will offer a Blind Spot Monitor as an available safety feature. According to the IIHS, a Blind Spot Monitor can reduce the likelihood of lane-change collisions by 14% and lane-change collision injuries by 23%.

When you have a vehicle that is equipped with a Blind Spot Monitor, sensors will monitor for when a vehicle enters your blind spot zones. If a vehicle enters into your blind spot, you will be provided with a visual alert that will illuminate on your side mirror. There are some Blind Spot Monitors that have an audible alert as well.
