This tool actually alerts you whenever you are trying to merge over and someone is in your blind spot.  Something will either flash in your mirror or there will be a small beeping alarm that will let you know.

Usually, this tool responds whenever you put on your turn signal, so that is kind of a trigger.

volvo-s60-concept-interior1The technology that is in the world in general is absolutely incredible.  Never did I think that I would see things the size of a match box hold all sorts of private information pulled off of a computer that is as thin as a notebook.  The technology that has been passed on from computers has slowly made its way on over to the car market and nowadays, cars have some of the best technology in the world.

That is what we are going to explore in the next few blogs, exactly what technology is out there that can truly keep you safe and sound whenever you are driving.  Do you use cruise control?  I do – all of the time and I have to say that the newest cruise control feature that is popping up on a lot of cars is fantastic!

It actually makes sure that you stay a safe distance away from the car in front of you, that way you do not end up in a car accident.
