A recent study undertaken has shown that car accidents related to the dreaded “Blind Spot” have increased by almost 50% – in a matter of just two years.
The study of 50,000 car crashes between 2009 and 2011 has shown a dramatic 48% rise in accidents caused by drivers not properly checking their blind spots.
Experts say that this shocking figure is also completely avoidable – if only motorists would learn how to correctly check their cars for blind spots.
Drivers are advised to carefully position their mirrors in order to minimise the existence of these fields of poor sight as much as possible, by having each side mirror reflecting as little of your own car as possible, with the main rear-view mirror giving a perfectly straight view of what is directly behind your own car at all times.
By doing this, you should maximise your field of view, and minimise the potential risks of any accidents.
Safe driving from Britannia!
