Blind Spot Monitor at Your St. Johns County Dealership

May 2nd, 2019 by

In addition to Toyota Safety Sense and the Star Safety System, Toyota has many other safety technologies. Toyota’s Blind Spot Monitoring feature includes a Blind Spot Monitor and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to help detect and alert you to vehicles in your blind spot. Let’s take a closer look at a demonstration from Rodney Gonzales how these features work and how you can use them to improve safety on the road.

What is a Blind Spot Monitor?
The Blind Spot Monitor alerts the driver if someone is in their blind spot or if someone is coming up behind your vehicle when you start to reverse, a warning light will flash in your mirror and it will also make a beeping sound.

When would I need a Blind Spot Monitor?
Any time you reverse out any parking spot, for example, while at a grocery store, your doctors office, or a residential neighborhood.

Does my Blind Spot Monitor only detect vehicles?
No, your Blind Spot Monitor will also detect pedestrians, including someone pushing a stroller or riding a bike.

Remember to always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors and do not rely exclusively on the Blind Spot Monitor Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system. Contact Rodney Gonzales at (904) 797-8800 or rgonzales@beavertoyota.com if you would like to see a demonstration of how the Blind Spot Mirrors work.
