A blind spot monitor can reduce the risk of lane-change collisions by alerting you when a vehicle moves into your blind spot zones. Blind spot monitors typically use technologies that include radars, sensors, and cameras, and some safety packages that are available with certain vehicles include a blind spot monitor.

Blind spot monitors can significantly enhance safety. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that driver-assist features, which include blind spot monitors and lane keeping systems, can reduce fatalities and injuries caused by lane drifting, and blind spot monitors may reduce lane-change collisions by 11 percent and lane-change collision injuries by 21 percent.
