Consider these tips the next time you park your vehicle
When considering the many safety hazards driving can present, few people think about the dangers one might face when the journey is over, and they've arrived at their destination. But it's important to remember that your point A to point B travels are not complete until you exit your vehicle, so you can't let your guard down until that engine is finally turned off.
Over 50 percent of accidents occur close to a person's home, and it's fair to wonder how many of those occur at the endpoint. Parking garages, hilltops, and more all present a certain amount of danger for careless drivers, so consider these tips the next time you're parking your vehicle:
Backup cameras use a fish lens, meaning the objects might seem closer or farther away depending on the camera's viewpoint. Similarly, sensors are great as long as they function properly. If one goes out and your system doesn't recognize it, you could smash into another vehicle by accident without ever knowing there was an obstacle in the first place.
