Blind Spot Detection 101

While the mirrors in your car can help you keep tabs on the vehicles around you, their limited angle of view and visual obstructions, like your car’s rear pillars, means you can’t see everything. This is where the term “blind spots” derives from. And even though you can – and perhaps should – turn your head, so you always know what’s happening around your car, blind spot detection makes this a lot easier.

Using sensors outside your vehicle, blind spot detection will continually monitor the area around your car. If other vehicles enter your blind spots, you will get a visual alert. If you put your turn signal on when a vehicle is in your blind spot, your Chevy Malibu will send you an audible warning that it’s not safe to change lanes.

Why is Blind Spot Detection Important?
