An all-too frequent type of accident occurs when drivers are unaware of other vehicles in their blind spots, that area not covered by rearview or outside mirrors. Auto Care Products, Inc. has come up with a way of widening the viewing range of your exterior mirrors as well as alerting other drivers in your blind spot that you are turning.

The Turn Smart system includes a pair of wide-angle mirrors that attach to your existing mirrors with double-sided tape The wireless, solar-powered LED lights are brighter than most taillights and flash in unison with your vehicle’s blinker lights by means of a small transmitter that is installed underneath the rear bumper and is easily connected to the wires that control the left and right turn signals. Each kit contains everything you need to complete the installation, including tape, batteries and a quickcharge cigarette lighter adapter. No tools are required.

The Turn Smart kit, which sells for $150 (plus shipping) will fit just about any vehicle. To get yours, contact the manufacturer at or phone 1-800-992-2018.
