Know Your Blind Spots

It is important to know that each vehicle has blind spots. As a driver, it is essential to be aware of these and to take the necessary precautions to acknowledge that other motorists may be present in your blind spots. This is important to keep in mind when you are required to take quick action or would like to make a lane change.

Blind Spots


Always safely glance over your right shoulder before changing to the right lane, and always glance over your left shoulder before maneuvering to the left lane.

If you are travelling on a road with duel lanes, be courteous of other drivers and try to avoid travelling in another driver?s blind spot for a lengthy period of time.
