As summer says goodbye and we start to move into autumn and winter, it’s important to think about how poor weather can affect driving and visibility. These past few days have seen heavy rains, low light, and even hail in my area, which means different conditions for driving. You’ve got longer stopping distances, so keep those tyres inflated, and poorer visibility, so make sure your batteries are charged and your headlights are on.
One situation in which the reduced visibility becomes especially dangerous is reversing. Reversing can be especially stressful when there’s the distraction of driving rain, and wet side mirrors can be almost impossible to use for a clear view. Add slippery roads to the problem, and reversing using conventional means is dangerously risky, which is why the change of seasons is a good time to think about getting a reversing camera kit.
With night vision, high durability, and reliable view, a rear vision camera is a better choice than the standard combination of side mirrors and rear view mirrors. It allows you to see what’s behind your vehicle clearly even in adverse conditions, and the monitor attached to the kit includes a distance scale to help you judge where you are in relation to obstacles. At Safety Dave, we’re dedicated to bringing you the best reversing cameras for cars, caravans, horse floats and motor homes, as well as a range of trailers and other vehicles. So stay safe this autumn and winter and ensure you have the visibility you need.
