When you need to change lanes, the first thing you do is to check to see whether the road is clear. However, in the time it takes to put on your turn signal or take one last look at your side mirror, a car could appear out of nowhere. Blind-spot monitors can help you stay aware of your surroundings. Many of the new vehicles that we have at Truck Town in Bremerton come with this system.

Blind-spot monitors rely on sensors to detect the presence of other vehicles in those hard-to-see spots. Those sensors usually use ultrasonic or radar systems. When a car is detected, a warning is activated to let the driver know to look twice.

That warning typically consists of a light housed in the side mirror that turns on. It could also involve a beeping or a vibration of the steering wheel.
