15 Jan What You Need to Know About Blind Spot Vehicle Accidents (Part 2)
Picking up from What You Need to Know About Blind Spot Vehicle Accidents (Part 1), the following has some more important info regarding these common types of traffic accidents. While the first part of this blog discussed some of the factors that can contribute to blind spot vehicle accidents, here in Part 2, we will take a closer look at what motorists can do to reduce their risk of getting into these collisions.
How to Reduce the Risk of Getting Into Blind Spot Accidents
In order to minimize the possibility that you will be involved in a blind spot vehicle accident:
- Be diligent about checking and adjusting all of your vehicle’s mirrors every time before you drive the vehicle. This is especially important if more than one person drives your car and/or you are driving a rental car, a friend’s car or some other vehicle for the first time.
- Do not try to adjust the car’s mirrors while the car is in motion; instead, pull the car over or wait until you are at a stop light (if you forget to make the necessary adjustments before driving the car).
- Always turn your head to check your own blind spots before you make a turn or change lanes. Even if you think you are alone on the road, be diligent about checking your blind spots, as you may not have noticed another motorist entering the roadway, and it’s a good force of habit to instill in yourself.
- Do your best to try to NOT drive in other drivers’ blind spots – especially if these other drivers are truck drivers and/or are operating very large vehicles. Although you cannot always do this, particularly if there are a lot of cars on the road, when it’s possible to avoid being in others’ blind spots, take advantage of this possibility.
