Where is the Blind spot while driving
Let’s take a look at the 3 cars in the diagram driving along a motorway. Every car has 2 blind spots each side of the car as suggested by the blue shaded areas coming from the red car in the diagram. The blue shading is the area that the driver of the red car cannot see into simply by looking into the mirrors alone.
The orange car can be seen in the red cars right door mirror and perhaps slightly in the interior mirror. The yellow car is completely out of sight from the driver of the red car as it is in his blind spot.
Driving blind spot where the blue shaded area is blind spot area.
If the red car driver wants to change over to the left lane where the yellow car is, he will first need to look into his interior mirror, followed by the left door mirror and then briefly look over his left shoulder to check the left blind spot before changing lanes.
Failure to check this blind spot could clearly cause an accident. The same procedure must be completed if he wished to move to the right hand lane.
