Our Virginia Select Auto team is committed to helping our Amherst shoppers use their vehicles to the fullest. A Blind Spot Monitor is an innovative driver-assist feature that can help you and those around you stay safe.

A Blind Spot Monitor uses technologies, such as a sonar or radar sensors, to keep watch for cars that are rapidly approaching or in your blind spots. There are some Blind Spot Monitors that provide you with a visual alert on the corresponding exterior mirror, and some warn you when you turn the blinker on. Typically, Blind Spot Monitors are standard with high-level trims, but there are some base trims that offer it as an available feature. A Blind Spot Monitor may also be offered as part of a package.

Blind Spot Monitors have been found to reduce the risk of lane-change collisions. The IIHS reported that this feature can lessen injuries due to lane-change accidents by 23 percent.
