There is nothing worse than the feeling you get when you realize that you have backed your car into another vehicle, or into a pole, fence, fire hydrant, or other stationary object. Yet, this situation is completely and easily preventable. All you need to do is install a backup sensor on your car, truck, or van.
Where can you find backup sensors for cars? An excellent source is American Security Company, a division of SVL Industries, Inc. Here is an overview of what you can find on their website, www.americansecurityco.com/automotivebackupsensors.aspx.
* Echo Master Backup Navigator 2 Sensor Systems, available in black, silver, and white colors. The price for these backup sensor systems is $159, regardless of the color you choose.
* Echo Master Backup Navigator 4 Sensor Systems. Building on the effectiveness of the 2 Sensor Systems, these Backup Navigator Systems provide even more protection against accidents occurring from inadvertent crashes. These systems are available in black, silver, and white colors. Pricing for these backup sensor systems is $189.
* Hitch Scan Wireless Trailer Hitch Detection System. Priced at $239 to $299, these backup detection systems help to prevent accidents caused by a collision involving the trailer hitch on your vehicle.
No doubt you would agree that a couple of hundred dollars spent on one of these backup detection systems is a small price to pay when compared to the potential cost of an automotive accident. As the old saying goes: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
