Back Up Sensors

Until recently, back up sensors were largely the stuff of science fiction and frustrated drivers' fantasies. After all, who among us has not wished for help when backing up into a tight spot? Even the best and most experienced drivers, when pressed, will acknowledge that when they are backing up, their inability to see what is directly behind the car necessitates a level of guesswork that is not 100% secure.

The risks to the safety of yourself, your vehicle, and those around you are real, and they are more serious than you might realize. Every 1.6 minutes, an American driver gets into an avoidable collision while backing his car up. More disturbing, thousands of cars require repair every day to fix damages caused in these types of collisions.

A New Level of Protection

Fortunately, for the first time, back up sensors are both affordable and effective in ways that they have never been before. Thanks to the ingenuity of a handful of top manufacturers, this new generation of back up sensors is designed with a level of innovation and efficiency previously impossible. The result is that any driver can now afford a tool that every driver needs.

Better still, the new breed of back up sensors are easier to install than any auto accessory besides a radar detector. That means that you can be up and running in no time at all, with no drilling required. Confidence has never been this easy to implement.

How Back Up Sensors Work

The best new backup proximity sensors utilize proprietary technology and embedded microcomputers to give you a clear picture of precisely where your car is relative to other objects or people as you back up. Using a series of warning beeps that increase in pitch as you approach a possible collision, these sensors put you fully in control. For the first time, you can virtually "see" the areas that are so difficult to see when you are in reverse.

Sensors Mean Safety

The difficult fact is that children and pets are all too likely to be standing or playing in exactly the areas where you may be backing up your car. Whether in the driveway or at curbside, potentially catastrophic accidents are now avoidable as never before. With so much on the line, it's no wonder that savvy drivers are increasingly turning to the most effective sensors available.
