Traffic Advisory for the Week of March 11-17, 2024


Road Safety Reminder for the Week

Blind Spots

Every vehicle has blind spots. These are areas around the vehicle that a driver cannot see when looking straight ahead or using the mirrors. For most vehicles, the blinds spots are at the sides, slightly behind the driver.

To check your blind spots, look over your right and left shoulders out of your side windows. Only turn your head when you look. Do not turn your whole body or steering wheel. Check your blind spots before you:

  • Change lanes
  • Turn at an intersection
  • Merge with traffic
  • Back up
  • Leave a parking space
  • Parallel park
  • Pull out from the curb
  • Open your car door
