What did you say? Back-up Cameras…. What’s wrong with turning your head my Grandfather says. There’s a number of advanced technologies popping up in new cars these days. Auto manufacturers are really using this technology to make our driving experience more satisfying. GPS, Keyless Entry/Starting, Blue Tooth Pairing of your Cell Phone , in-vehicle security communications & Assistance and of course the Car Alarm. The list goes on and on.
One of the neatest auto safety improvements these days is the Back-up Camera. In fact, I have one in my new company car. Between my rear view mirrors and the camera, I truly feel comfortable backing up my car. For as long as I have been driving (please don’t ask), I have always worried about hitting a low curb or worse a small child. The Back-up camera removes most of the worry because of the expanded view the combination on the camera and your traditional rear view mirrors provide you. My car is also equipped with a beeping car safety alert when your back bumper becomes to close to a fixed object.
If by chance you find yourself in the new car market, think about a Rear View Camera System. Beyond the auto safety and security many of these options offer, some will pay for themselves over time by providing you a discount on your Car Insurance.
