FAQ

Why is it important to understand and manage blind spots?

Managing blind spots is crucial because they are areas around your vehicle that you cannot see using your mirrors alone, which can lead to collisions if not properly checked.

What are the steps to safely change lanes?

Signal your intention well in advance, check your mirrors, look over your shoulder to check your blind spot, and then move into the lane if it is clear. Ensure you turn off your signal once the lane change is complete.

How can I minimize the risks when merging onto highways?

Signal early, match the speed of the traffic on the highway, and merge smoothly into the lane without disrupting the flow of traffic.

What should I do if another driver is trying to change lanes into my lane?

Give them room, stay visible, and avoid speeding past them or attempting to go around them. Be alert for any sudden moves they might make.

Are there legal requirements for signaling before changing lanes?

Yes, most states require drivers to signal their intention to change lanes 100 to 300 feet (30 to 90 meters) in advance. It’s important to follow your local laws regarding signaling.
