If you’ve never driven – or much worse, owned – a car or other vehicle with a nightmarish turning circle, you should consider yourself lucky. As someone who has owned a car that struggles to get around smaller roundabouts, I’m in a unique position to appreciate the benefits of a reversing camera kit firsthand. Let me tell you how rough it is with a car like that, especially if you don’t have the best spatial awareness (I don’t). Where most vehicles can do a U-turn, I’ve had to do a three-point turn. And where other people would use a three-point turn… well, suffice to say that I’ve very quickly got to the point where I’ve lost track of how many points there are in my turns. It can be an intensely stressful experience just driving around a packed carpark, trying to avoid scraping anyone else as you slide into an open parking spot. And you can feel everybody watching you as you hold them up, their stares boring into the back of your neck. Not a pleasant experience, and one that has at times given me an incentive to avoid shopping centres like the plague.
Fortunately, with a rear vision camera, everything becomes so much easier. With a proper view of the space around your vehicle, you don’t have to wince and hope you’re not backing into anyone, while panicking that you might not make a turn. At Safe-T-Dave, we want to keep you safe and take the stress away, so we’ll have you find the best reversing camera for your needs and help you deal with the pressure in those crowded car parks and narrow roads.
