Rear view cameras are becoming an increasingly popular safety feature in both modern motors and classic cars. This automotive technology can save lives, prevent injury and even save on damages to your car. The main benefit of this new feature is undeniable: It helps drivers back up their vehicle safely which reduces the risk of hitting a bollard, another car or, even worse, a cyclist or pedestrian.
Many car manufacturers are starting to fit this safety feature as standard in new models as a selling point for families and, with the Government NSE estimating a quarter of all deaths – including vehicles at work – are caused by reversing or parking, it’s not hard to see why!
Enhance Your Safety With A Fitted Reverse Camera Kit
Don’t have the hottest new car on the market? Not to worry. You don’t have to buy a new car to enjoy the benefits of this technology. These days, there are a range of state-of-the-art, quality reverse cameras available to fit almost any vehicle type. They are just as good, if not better, than their pre-fitted counterparts.
Still not convinced? We’ve put together a list of 5 practical benefits to this new age electrical equipment:
Eliminate Your Blind Spot
When reversing or negotiating tighter parking spaces it can be tricky to judge just how close you are to hitting the wall behind you. A back-up camera helps to eliminate your blind spot and reverse like a pro.
Keep Children And Pets Safe
Children are small and pets sit pretty close to the ground. Both remain out of view when backing up your car, which places them at a greater risk than other pedestrians. With a rear view camera, whether already fitted to your car or installed by a professional, can help reduce the risk of injury to small children or pets.
We’ve all been stuck in traffic and either the car in front needs to back up a little or you need to reverse. It’s terrifying wondering if your bumper is going to take a hit or if you’re going to end up crashing into the driver behind you. A little guided help from a back-up camera can make fine-tuned reversing a stress-free process.
Drive Larger Vehicles With Ease
It’s no secret that large vehicles operate differently to your normal sized car. But when looking to park in a spot that is intended for vehicles of a regular size, you have to be especially careful with your large truck, van or caravan. The last thing you want is to accidentally damage surrounding cars. It’s a good thing your reverse camera does the job for you, which can save you a great deal of time and effort with just one swift manoeuvre.
Avoid Unnecessary Expenses
The inconvenience of chipping your paintwork is not the only thing you have to worry about when reversing we’re afraid. If you hit another car you could face some pretty costly damages or a giant leap in your insurance premium… oops! Having a dedicated reverse camera installed reduces the chance of forking out for motor repairs or for a compensation claim for another driver.
