When I changed lanes in my old car, I would look in the side view mirror, then the rear mirror and then I would give a glance over my shoulder as well. Now, in my model 3, I use the side mirror, a glance over and then I look at the screen radar thing just to be sure it is safe.
Sometimes though, when my blinker is on and there is another vehicle in the way, that vehicle turns red on my screen... and because I am looking at the screen, I stop making the lane change. My question here is... what if I do not look at the screen in this moment? Is there any kind of alarm, or auto avoiding thing that happens if I commit to changing lanes while another vehicle is in the way? Or would I just hit them?
Thanks for the info!
