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

There are many cars present in our cities. And the number is continually growing. Although the number of cars becomes larger quickly, the number of accessible parking space changes not equally fast. Often, if we try to park a car, we have to place our car in rather narrow space. It is not uncommon that we ned to park back and reverse auto into a parking space.

May us as practicing that skill many times during driving course. Most of us have to present that ability when having the driving test. Personally, I can’t think of that would feel confident and chilled out 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 do this. In practise, I was really worried that I could hit something or someone with my car. This thought terrified me so badly that I even started to avoid reverse parking.

What was even more scarry for me was that there is area called “blind area” right behind your car. Have you ever thought about this? That is an field which cannot be seen in the rearview mirror. Blind area can’t be directly watched from the car if you sit on a driver sit. You must to admit, it’s very creepy that you do not see thearea directly behind a car. Field that could be essential for parking your car safely.

In consequence, I have conducted a research. I have asked a lot of friends and family members. Most of them have told me to purchase parking sensors. They have told me that they are ultrasonic sensors that would alert me if there is an obstacle over my car while I park. I need to admit – it is ok. Nonetheless, I was not concinved if I should purchase it. Why? I usually knew that there was something behind a car. I normally was aware if it was pretty close or still far away. What I needed was something that could give me the exact information about how larg is the distance between the back of the car and the thing behind it.
