Just a little bit curious..

Recommended Posts

 

I am now in Canada, Ontario, today I drove on the highway and I was going to change my lane, I looked the mirrors but I didn't see any cars however there was a car behind me. I believe he must break suddenly and he hooted me badly. But no accident and he quickly drove over me looked back angrily. I raised my hand to express that I'm sorry. I know this is absolutely my fault, I just wish to know what will happen next? Will I get a ticket for this?  Thank you guys!

Sounds like you didn't check your " Blind Spot " when you changed lanes. No ticket, but just a pissed off driver. Just make sure you check your mirrors and the blind spot  and you'll be good.

Thank you and yes that was absolutely my fault. I just check my mirror and it was nice and clean. Need to check my blind spot, definitely.

I adjust my side mirrors to see the "blind spots" instead of the sides of the car since 10 years ago.  Once you get used to it you will find it much safer when changing lanes.

If properly adjusted, the car approaching you in the lane beside you should just disappear from your inside mirror when it appears in your side mirror.

I have the "blind spot"  mirrors on my F-150 and my wife's Taurus has light indicators on her mirrors to signal another car is in the blind spots. Works really good.

You might want to check at an Auto Parts Store for what we used to call a "fish eye" for your side view mirrors. They are usually a peal and stick type of an attachment for the side view mirrors and give you a much wider field of vision.
