Blind Spot Blunder

I had just gotten a brand new car that had a built in blind spot detection system. I loved this feature of the car because it made me feel even safer when driving, but eventually it turned me into a lazy driver. I got so used to relying on the blind spot detection system that I stopped doing manual shoulder checks. One day I was driving on the highway, went to switch lanes and I guess the blind spot detection system wasn’t working. I ended up colliding pretty hard with the driver next to me. Luckily no one was badly hurt but there was severe damage to both vehicles. I learned my lesson to stop relying solely on technology and remain focused on real life driving.
