A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.
