GM has teamed up with Valeo Raytheon to offer a blind-spot detection system on select 2008 Cadillac and Buick models. In other words, GM is catering to idiots drivers who don’t know how to look before switching lanes.
The system operates by calculating the position, distance and direction of travel for vehicles in the adjacent lane of travel. It then alerts the driver of a potential hazard with a visible warning symbol that appears in the side view mirror.
There is no word yet on which Cadillac and Buick models will have the technology and how much it will cost. Maybe Cadillac will throw it in the 2008 CTS.
