The Backstabber

Things from behind can take you by surprise. There’s a reason the word “backstabber” has the connotations it does – it’s not just an attack from an arbitrary position, it’s specifically dishonourable because the victim isn’t expecting it. And why won’t you expect it if someone stabs you in the back? Simple – because you don’t have eyes in the back of your head. Humans have limited visibility behind us. So do vehicles. Understandable, most vehicles are designed with windscreens and drivers in front, so that you can clearly see what’s going on ahead. But the flip side is that – even with all sorts of mirrors and cunning tricks with reflection – it can be pretty hard to see behind you.

Consequently, reversing can be a harrowing activity. Your vehicle – which has quite considerable mass, so anything it hits, it’s going to hit hard – is moving and you don’t have as much of an idea as you’d like about what’s in its path. So it’s a good idea to invest in a reverse camera kit. This simple gadget gets mounted on your rear bumper or somewhere nearby, and drastically increases your field of vision when you’re reversing. A rear vision camera will ensure you don’t scrape your vehicle when reversing in and out of tight spots, and you won’t run over any feet or pets. It’s a much safer way to drive, and it will make your life and your reversing experience more comfortable and less stressful.

More and more vehicles are being manufactured with inbuilt cameras, but plenty of people still drive older models that don’t have this technology. That’s why you should go to Safety Dave to get the best reversing cameras possible for your vehicle, in order to keep up with the times and ensure your safety is up to standard.
