Can’t stop thinking about blind area while? I was also scared about reverse parking!

There are many cars present in our cities. And the number is continually getting higher. Even though the number of cars grows promptly, the number of free parking space changes not equally fast. Repeatedly, if we want to park your car, we have to fit our car in rather limited space. It is not uncommon that we ned to park back and reverse car into a parking area.

May us as practicing that skill tons of times during driving course. Most of us have to present that practice during the driving test. Personally, I can’t think of that would feel comfortable and relaxed when reversing car. I also used to have that problem since I can remember. And that regularly made me feel very stressed. Theoretically, I knew how to do this. In practise, I was terrified that I could hit something or someone with my car. This thought worried me so badly that I even stopped doing reverse parking.

The thing that was even more scarry for me was that there is field called “blind area” just behind your car. Have you ever worried about it? That is an area that cannot be seen in the rearview mirror. Blind area cannot be directly observed from the car when you sit on a driver sit. You have to admit, it’s rather creepy that you can’t see afield directly behind your car. Area which is crucial for parking your car harmlessly.

So, I have conducted my onw research. I have asked many colleagues and family members. Most of them have suggested me to invest in parking sensors. They have told me that they are electromagnetic sensors that will alert me if there is any obstacle behind a car while I park. I have to admit – it is ok. Nevertheless, I was not sure if I should purchase them. Why? I often knew that there was something behind a car. I frequently was aware if it was rather close or still far away. What I wanted to have was something that could give me the precise info about how big is the distance between the back of my car and the thing behind it.
