Your Car’s Blind Spots

While driving is a necessary daily activity for many people, cars traveling alongside one another at high speeds in narrow lanes can be a recipe for disaster. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission, one person dies in a car accident every 13 minutes. It is clearly important for all drivers to make safety a priority. Being aware of blind spots is one way to reduce your chances of being involved in a serious automobile accident.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident because of another driver’s negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses.

Awareness and Prevention

Blind spots are any area surrounding your car that you cannot see, even with the help of mirrors. While new cars are designed to increase visibility, most cars still have blind spots. Depending on the size of your vehicle, the areas you cannot see will vary. Generally, larger vehicles have larger blind spots.

Before shifting lanes or turning, make sure you check your blind spot. Typically, drivers quickly look over their shoulder to make sure the road is clear and safe for them to move over.

It is not only important to be aware of your own vehicle’s limited visibility, but also to consider other drivers’ blind spots, as well. Large trucks, such as 18-wheelers, have large blind spots. In order to remain in their visibility, do not follow too closely. If you cannot see their rear view mirrors, they cannot see you. Additionally, do not hover beside an 18-wheeler for an unnecessarily long period of time.

By being conscientious of blind spots, you may reduce your likelihood of getting involved in an automobile accident.
