An unfortunate fact of life is that not all car parks are created equal. Some are very badly designed indeed, and it can be tricky to leave them or turn around when they’re full. Another inconvenient truth is that some vehicles are just far too big for these car parks – and that normally doesn’t stop their owners from parking right next to you.
So what should you do when you’re packed in on either side, and need to back out very carefully without scraping either of the oversized vehicles next to you? Historically speaking, the answer involved a complicated arrangement of mirrors – rear view mirror, wing mirror, head checks, estimates, calculations. And it wasn’t all that accurate and required a fair amount of intuition. Fortunately, these days there’s a better way.
Rear vision camera kits help you reverse out of difficult parking spots.
With a reversing camera, you have a hugely increased awareness of your surroundings. Instead of having to fill in massive blind spots that are invisible to a standard setup of mirrors, you can see exactly what’s behind your vehicle, and you know exactly how much space you have to reverse and when you have to stop.
Cameras make it so much easier to do all this tricky manoeuvring. And that goes double if you’re not driving a car, but instead driving a van or towing a trailer. All of the complicated stress of parking with a trailer just goes away when both your vehicle and your trailer are equipped with the best reverse cameras on the market. Safety Dave has boat reversing cameras, caravan reversing cameras, horse float reversing cameras – whatever your needs, we’ll see to it that you are equipped to drive, reverse, and park safely.
Remember, safety should be your number one priority. So don’t make compromises. Don’t tell yourself: “Oh well, mirrors are good enough.” Trust me, you’ll regret that when you back into someone or scrap someone as you’re trying to parallel park. Give Safety Dave a call, and we’ll figure out what camera system will be right for you. Then you can relax knowing that parallel parking doesn’t have to be an ordeal.
