Improving safety should be a concern of all drivers. Drivers sometimes find themselves limited by the capabilities of their vehicles. Manufacturers, thankfully, do come up with interesting new features designed to improve safety and performance. A blind spot monitor is one of them. How does it work?

A blind spot monitor works like a radar. A vehicle with such a monitor comes with built-in sensors. The sensors keep tabs on other vehicles on the road. Since the driver cannot always see where these vehicles are, the chances of a crash increase when changing lanes or otherwise maneuvering. A blind spot monitor may reduce the chances of a crash.

When a vehicle enters a blind spot, the monitor's sensors give off a warning. Drivers who pay attention to the warnings may avert disaster on the road. Maybe an insurance company will give a discount, too.

You can't avoid blind spots when driving in Redding, CA. You can find cars in the showroom at Crown Ford that come with awesome blind spot monitors.
