I saw a Dart commercial recently that blind spot monitoring and WIFI are available options. All the looking we did I never saw those options. Does anyone have either of these?
that seems rather unsafe. haven't seen any of the commercials but I would be surprised if that were the case, and even more surprised if there was not an option to disable it.My 2013 Dodge Dart Limited Edition has blind spot monitoring. If a car gets in my blind spot, left or right, a beeper keeps sounding and a light on the outside mirror facing the car flashes.
The same happens if another car tail gates me. A loud beeper flashes and my tail lights flash to notify the other driver.
None of my other cars over the past 50 years had this defense and several times tailgating cars crashed into my rear bumper. After a few of those incidents I started using the 4 way flasher if they got too close and flagged nearby cops to ticket the offenders. Since then, I have had no incidents.that seems rather unsafe. haven't seen any of the commercials but I would be surprised if that were the case, and even more surprised if there was not an option to disable it.
It is the other driver's responsibility to maintain a safe following distance, not to depend on flashing lights from the car ahead.
Loud beepers and flashing lights could startle some operators.
