You would never drive forward with the same limited visibility that we have when we reverse in our vehicles. In fact, backup crashes kill more than two hundred people annually and are responsible for over fifteen thousand injuries.
Nearly one-third of these accidents involved children in driveways or parking lots. While an adult may be able to simply step out of the way of a moving vehicle, a young child, someone with disabilities or animals are the ones who are most commonly injured. This is why the federal government passed a law stating that all new vehicles over ten thousand pounds must be equipped with rear monitoring technology. The hope is that with more people using backup cameras around sixty to seventy lives a year will be saved. And once you have used a wireless backup camera you won’t know how you ever lived without one.
No car is perfect, they all have blind spots and vision is just simply limited around your car, especially the rear. When cars started being built with superior roof strengths, we started to lose visibility around our cars. We also have headrests that impede our sightlines when backing up our vehicles. With a wireless backup camera you can add 170 degrees of wide-angle vision around your car. This is thirty degrees wider than the standard backup camera. With this 2 megapixel, weather-resistant camera you help eliminate any potential blindspots from your view.
Parking lots can be a nightmare and sometimes backing into a parking stall is your only option. Sometimes you need to back into a spot to unload and want to make sure you can back in and still have enough clearance to open your trunk. A wireless backup camera is here to save the day. Turning on the backup camera will help you smoothly slide into a tight spot by guiding you exactly where you are pulling into and just how much room you have. The backup camera can also help in a pinch when you have been blocked in by other cars. Turning on your camera to help you navigate the mere inches the other cars left you to get out of your parallel parking spot will put you at ease. It can also help you avoid the costly repair of the dings that come from tapping the car behind you as you try to escape your tight spot.
Simply install the camera onto your license plate and then download the app and you are set to backup safely. You never know if a little one is going to dart out behind your car. With this camera you have vision not only directly behind your car but off to the side as well, so you’ll have time to slam on the brakes just in case.
Help yourself be and feel safer in your car by installing a wireless backup camera. Avoid all the grief of causing an accident, and save yourself the costly mistake of accidentally hitting the car or property behind you as you try to reverse. Even the slightest bump can come with a high price tag.
