In life, one often must weigh a desire to be generous against the necessary caution required for personal responsibility. You might want to donate more money to charity, but you need to look after your own finances first. It would be great to be able to give your partner lavish gifts for your anniversary, but maybe that’s a bit outside the budget. And even if you really wish you could lend your mate your car for a little while, if he’s only ever driven tiny hatchbacks and your vehicle is an SUV, it’s wise to be a little worried that he won’t be able to park it.
There’s a level of judgement that you have to acquire, and a lot of these situations require you to compromise. But at least in the third case, there’s a good third option – get a reverse camera kit for your car. With a rear vision camera clearly showing what’s behind the car on a handy monitor, the chance that your mate will misjudge distance and bang up your car while trying to parallel park becomes drastically lower. Quite aside from that, the camera will make parking a safer, less stressful experience for you as well. It means that you don’t have to rely on distortion-prone mirrors, abstract visualisation and vague spatial awareness when you reverse – you have a solid perspective boosted by the latest in safety technology.
The reversing camera is quickly becoming a standard, with more and more new vehicles including built-in cameras. But unlike a lot of other safety features, it’s easy to add a camera to an older vehicle, without expensive retrofitting and workshopping. At Safety Dave, we have a selection of cameras for all your needs, and they’re so simple to set up that a child can do it. So remember that caution isn’t just doing nothing – it’s taking the steps to make your life safer.
