Every vehicle needs to be designed more safely. Lately, the automakers have pushed to have blind-spot monitoring as a critical component of these vehicles. This is because blind-spot monitoring saves lives and overcomes the basic human challenge of the blind-spot. We all have a blind-spot as human beings. It is how we are designed, and there is no way to get around it. The best we can do is use technology to aid us to overcome this challenge. That is what a blind-spot monitoring system does. The system will take over the controls of the vehicle as needed and move it back into its proper lane when necessary if a driver begins to move too far over into a lane where another vehicle is present. People often don't realize how important it is to keep an eye on their blind-spots, but they should be more aware of this and should appreciate the added value that a vehicle with this feature has.
