You Need These 10 Must Have Car Features: Find Out Why



Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Bling Spot Monitoring, sometimes referred to as BLIS, include small indicators on or near the mirrors that light up when a vehicle is in your blind spot. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety these systems can reduce lane change crashes by 14% and lane change crashes with injury by 23%. 

This allows you to drive on the highway or on multi-lane streets with much more confidence. A Blind Spot Monitoring system isn't just for large vehicles, it can help you know if there is a car in a blind spot created by poor interior visibility. These systems are available as an option in 57% of 2017 models and standard on 9% of models. 

While traveling on the highway this is a feature you will love. Many manufacturers use these same sensors for Rear Cross Traffic Alert. This means that if you are in revers and plan to back out of a parking spot, you will get an alert if a car is coming from the side so that you can stop. Some systems will apply the brakes if you are backing out and rear cross traffic is detected, even if you don't take action. 

Look for a system that uses sensors and indicators, not cameras that require you to look at the in dash screen to see a lane. If you haul a trailer often, Ford is the only manufacturer with a trailer blind spot system.
