The roads of Britain are busier than they have ever been, and congestion has become a major problem in many of our cities. One of the difficulties of having all these vehicles on the road is that they all need somewhere to park. In many car parks and residential streets, it is not uncommon to see vehicles parked bumper to bumper. And when cars are so often in close proximity with one another, the risk of bumps and scrapes rises.
To ease the pressure, there are now a range of reversing and driving aids on the market which are there to help drivers get into and out of tight parking spaces without damaging their own vehicle, or anyone else’s. Electronic products like parking sensors can be retro-fitted to most types of vehicle at LNB’s Bristol Workshop.
The purpose of reversing aids is to alert the driver to obstacles which are outside their field of vision, or to warn them when they are close to another vehicle. These devices usually work by sounding an audible alarm when a danger presents itself. So for example, reversing sensors will sound the alarm if you are about to back into a bollard which is too low to be seen through the rear window. Rear parking sensors sound alarms at various frequencies, providing information on how close you are to the car or wall behind. With the additional information provided by these electronic driving aids, parking your car in a small space becomes easier than ever.
Most of these reversing and driving aids can be fitted to any vehicle. Here at LNB, we have many years experience in fitting accessories to vehicles, from tow bars to roof boxes. For more information on reversing aids and parking sensors, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
