There are many cars visible in our cities. And the number is regularly growing. Although the number of cars grows promptly, the number of free parking space increases not equally fast. Repeatedly, if we try to park a car, we need fit our car in rather narrow space. It is not uncommon that we ned to park back or reverse auto into a parking space.

May us as training that skill tons of times during driving courses. Most of us have to present that practice when having the driving test. Personally, I do not know anyone that feels confident and relaxed when reversing car. I also had that problem since I could remember. And that regularly made me feel very stressed. In theory, I knew how to conduct this. In practise, I was really worried that I will harm 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 a car. Have you ever worried about this? That is an field which cannot be seen in your rearview mirror. Blind area can’t be directly observed from the car if you sit on the driver sit. You have to admit, it's rather scary that you can’t see aarea right behind your car. Area that is essential for parking your car safely.

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

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