Reverse cameras are fast becoming a typical safety feature on modern cars, and they can also be mounted on older vehicles. But what are reasons behind this new trend? Well, reverse cameras actually save lives, avert injuries and thwart accidents involving your vehicle. This article highlights 4 ways reverse camera installation can make your vehicle much safer.
Get rid of blind spots
Although the rear view mirror can only reveal so much, even looking back while reversing your car cannot guarantee that you'll capture everything surrounding your car. The reality is that a motorist could be doing everything as per the book and yet crash or back up into another car that moved into their blind zone when they were looking at the opposite side mirror. A reverse camera installed on your vehicle provides an image of the rest of the blind zone behind you. When backing your car, the rear view image comes up on the navigation screen on your dashboard. This allows you to capture anything in your blind zone.
Parking lots especially in shopping malls, movie theatres, office parks are a total nightmare when you're trying to reverse your vehicle in the available parking space. A rear view camera protects you from ramming into or simply grazing another vehicle while attempting to park or drive out of a parking lot. In other words, it helps make your parking a lot safer by avoiding accidents.
The safety of your kids and pets
Kids are normally small and pets like to sit or lie on the ground. As a result, kids and pets may remain unnoticeable while backing your vehicle in the parking lot or driveway. A reverse camera shows anything that's behind your vehicle. This could be the difference between life and death for your children and pets.
You have probably encountered a scenario where the vehicle in front of you in a hectic traffic jam needs to reverse just a little bit or it's even your car that needs to back up. It is quite distressing having to think whether the vehicle just in front of you will ram into your front bumper or you are going to crash into the vehicle behind you. With the great help of reverse cameras, this complicated backing up in traffic can be safer and uncomplicated.
Whether you vehicle features a pre-installed reverse camera or if you mount it on your own, it guarantees a great safety addition for you and other road users. You'll have an easy time navigating parking lots, driveways and traffic.Share

My puppy is my best friend and my most common passenger in my car. He loves going for a drive and grooving along to my music. I have been customising the inside of the car to make it dog themed with a little safety harness for him as well as cute things like dog bone car seat covers and a little puppy face for my gear stick. I love outfitting my car with different auto accessories. This blog is all about various auto accessories for your car and will be great for any car owners who love accessories, like me.
