Why is a blind spot dangerous?

A blind spot is the area of the road that can’t be seen by looking forward through your windscreen, or by using your rear-view and side-view mirrors. Blind spots can easily block another car, motorbike, cyclist or pedestrian from your view. They cause drivers to have to physically turn their heads to look where their mirrors are unable to reach. On average a car has two main blind spots. These are generally on the back left and the back right side of the car.

That said, blind spots are dangerous because they can prevent you from noticing hazards and other road users. As such, blind spots are responsible for thousands of accidents each year on Los Angeles roadways.

To avoid fatal accidents, be sure to correctly position your mirrors to give you maximum visibility and check them regularly, for example, when changing lanes.
