Usually, it refers to the spaces to the rear of either side of an automobile as its traveling forward.

So, how can we combat this potentially dangerous part of driving? Thankfully, the folks over at the CarTalk.com website created a great step-by-step procedure for helping to mitigate blind spots by adjusting your mirrors. We’ve posted the link below.

Remember though, nothing replaces looking over your shoulder quickly before merging into another lane.

Be safe, be confident and happy driving!
