WHERE TO LOOK WHEN SHOULDER CHECKING.

Turn you're head 90° degrees in the direction you're moving the vehicle.

Thus, if you're moving the vehicle to the left, you shoulder check to the left by turning your head 90° to the left.

If you're moving the vehicle to the right, you shoulder check by moving your head 90° to the right.

By turning your head 90° degrees, your peripheral vision--which is 180° in most adults—will detect light and movement beyond 90°.

If your peripheral vision detects light or movement, you central vision will be pulled in to determine what is in your blind spot.
