Some of the most common car accidents are among the least recognized. Unfortunately, collisions that occur while backing up are as potentially dangerous as they are ubiquitous. Every 1.6 minutes, an American driver finds himself in a completely avoidable collision of this sort.

The problem lies in the fact that even the best drivers have an area directly behind their car that they cannot clearly see. That means that when backing up, at any speed, even the most experienced drivers are putting their cars and themselves at risk. Short of eyes in the back of your head, what can you to avoid this scenario?

The Most Common Car Accidents Are Avoidable

The reason that some of the most common car accidents are avoidable is that a handful of top manufacturers have recently brought a new generation of backup proximity sensors. These sensors, which are both affordable and easy to install, use microcomputers to alert you with greater urgency as you approach an object while moving in reverse. Combining proprietary technology with efficient design, the top manufacturers have finally enabled savvy drivers to avoid the avoidable.

Let's face it: there will always be risks that you cannot anticipate when you are in your car. The vast majority of accidents that occur while backing up, on the other hand, can be instantaneously anticipated with the right tools in hand. If you know where to look, you can cross some of the most common accidents off your risk list today.
