Gone are the days of constantly checking rear or side view mirrors and frequent shoulder checks. While nothing can replace driver vigilance, vehicle-based blind spot monitors can add a layer of safety to your driving experience by constantly watching areas that are difficult to see.

Using cutting edge technology, car companies are incorporating added safety measures into vehicle design. Radar, sonar, and cameras combine to keep tabs on surrounding traffic as you're driving. While there are minor differences in how the feature functions, most will sound an alarm as you attempt to change lanes and there is another car in that space. Drivers may also choose to disable the audio alarm in favor of a visual alarm that displays on the console.

Stop by Lithia Subaru of Fresno in Fresno, CA if you'd like to test drive a vehicle with blind spot monitoring. We'll be happy to explain this exciting feature to and answer any questions you may have.
