One of the times a reversing camera really shines is in low-visibility conditions. When it’s misty, dark, or raining heavily (especially if your rear windscreen doesn’t have any wipers), or a combination of the above, it can be extremely difficult to see out of your rear windscreen. If you’re relying on a conventional rear-view mirror, you can find yourself effectively trapped, unable to safely reverse because the visibility is just too poor. Worse still, you can misjudge the visibility and think you can see properly when you can’t, missing something and backing into it, and ending up damaging your car and/or someone else’s.
A rear vision camera won’t get covered in rain and is equipped with night vision capability, making it the perfect piece of equipment on a dark and stormy night. With a camera, you’re able to get a proper look at your surroundings before you reverse, helping you avoid an accident when parking or backing out onto the street. All of Safety Dave’s cameras are fully waterproof, so you don’t need to worry about the rain.
In the season of summer storms, it’s important to keep safe in wet conditions. That means understanding the effect that rain has on visibility, and taking appropriate safety precautions. A reversing camera kit is a good way to bolster your visual awareness when driving and reversing, helping you avoid costly and damaging accidents that can result from impaired perception and low-visibility conditions. A kit helps you gauge distance and see what’s behind you, informing you so you can stay safe this summer.
