Can’t stop wondering about blind area while? I was also afraid of reverse parking

There are tons of cars present in our cities. And the number is continually getting higher. Even though the number of cars becomes larger promptly, the number of available parking space increases not equally fast. Repeatedly, if we want to park a car, we have to fit a car in rather limited space. It is not uncommon that we have to park back or reverse auto into a parking space.

Most of us as practicing that skill many times during driving courses. Most of us have to present that practice during the driving test. Personally, I can’t think of that feels comfortable and relaxed when reversing car. I also had this problem since I could remember. And this regularly made me feel terribly stressed. Theoretically, I knew how to conduct this. In practise, I was terrified that I could hit something or someone with my car. This thought terrified me so badly that I even started to avoid reverse parking.

The thing that was even more disturbing for me was that there is area called “blind area” right behind my car. Have you ever thought about this? This is an area that is not visible in your rearview mirror. Blind area can’t be directly observed from the car if you Are on a driver sit. You must to admit, it's a bit creepy that you do not see afield right behind a car. Area that may be crucial for parking your car safely.

Thus, I have conducted my onw research. I have asked tons of friends and family members. Many of them have suggested me to invest in parking sensors. They have explained me that they are ultrasonic sensors that could alert me if there is any obstacle over my car while I park. I have to admit – it is ok. However, I was not concinved if I should buy it. Why? I usually knew that there was something behind my car. I normally knew if it was rather close or still far away. What I needed was something that would provide me with the exact information on how larg is the distance between the end of my car and the obstacle behind it.

And then, during the Christmas holiday, I have got from my father an unexpected but very useful present – a rear view camera for bmw. The model is not important right now – I can’t even remember it. What is important is that thanks to upgrade reverse camera bmw I am not afraid of reverse parking anymore!
