There are many cars visible on our roads. And the number is regularly growing. Even though the number of cars becomes higher rapidly, the number of accessible parking space increases very slowly. Often, if we try to park your car, we need place our car in rather narrow space. It is not unusual that we have to park back or reverse car into a parking space.

A lot of us as training that skill a lot of times during driving courses. Most of us have to present this practice when having the driving test. Personally, I do not know anyone that would feel confident and relaxed when reversing car. I also had this problem since I could remember. And it regularly made me feel terribly stressed. Theoretically, I knew how to conduct this. In practise, I was very worried that I can hit something or someone with my car. This fear terrified me so badly that I even started to avoid reverse parking.

What was even more scarry for me was that there is field called “blind area” right behind your car. Have you ever heard about this? This is an field which cannot be seen in a rearview mirror. Blind area cannot be directly observed from the car if you Are on the driver sit. You must to admit, it’s a little creepy that you are not able to see thearea right behind a car. Field which is crucial for parking your car safely.

So, I have conducted my onw research. I have asked a lot of friends and family members. Many of them have suggested me to purchase parking sensors. They have told me that they are electromagnetic sensors that could alert me if there is any obstacle over a car while I park. I have to admit – it is better than nothing. Nonetheless, I had big doubt if I should buy it. Why? I usually knew that there was obstacle behind a car. I normally knew if it was pretty close or still distant. What I wanted to have was something that would provide me with the precise information about how larg is the distance between the back of a car and the obstacle behind it.

And then, on my birthday, I have got from my father an unexpected but very useful gift – a rear view camera for bmw. The model is not important right now – I can’t even remember it. What is relevant is that thanks to upgrade reverse camera bmw I don’t worry about reverse parking anymore!
