How Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirrors Keep You Safe

Here at Cecil Atkission Toyota, our team wants you to be aware of the latest safety features for consideration when purchasing your next vehicle. Auto-dimming rearview mirrors may not sound like a crucial safety feature but they can keep you safe on the road at night. The impact of intense headlight glare in your rearview mirror at night can impair your vision and reaction time for up to 1.4 seconds.

Using a process called electrochromism, these mirrors use ambient light sensors to detect glare from following cars. When such light is detected, the integrated microprocessor sends a charge through the electrochromic gel used to darken the mirror and restrict the amount of light there to protect your eyes.

Have questions? Come by our Toyota dealership today. Our team will be happy to answer all of your questions on auto-dimming rearview mirrors and other safety features.
