Eyes in the back of your Car?
Save a Bike. Buy a Backup Camera
It’s Monday morning and as you’re backing out of the driveway you hear that obnoxious tell tale bump! that lets you know you’ve just hit the neighbor’s trash can again, or the scooter your son left out the night before. You’re a safe driver but you just couldn’t see those things through your standard rearview mirror.
The New Backup Camera Law
Hitting a trash can or a scooter is one thing but a backup camera is a crucial safety feature for your vehicle. What if it had been your neighbor’s new schnauzer puppy? It’s no wonder that the NHTSA just ruled that starting in 2016, all new cars must have a backup camera system installed. So what if you aren’t planning on buying a new car but you want the safety and convenience of a backup camera in your vehicle? Well, you’re in luck because backup camera systems can easily be installed in cars that didn’t come with that feature.
Types of Backup Camera Systems
You’ll want to discuss with a professional which system makes the most sense for your car. Some options to consider are wired, wireless, view angle (how wide of an angle the camera will capture, image quality, and screen size. Here are some of the most common systems:
Typically located under the license plate or above the hatch on a SUV, this style is simply installed as its own unit with brackets that screw the camera into the vehicle.
This option has a sharp look to it because it’s installed in a way that integrates seamlessly (it lays flush) into your vehicle.
Just like it sounds, this style is built into your license plate frame or an attachment to the existing license plate mount. The advantage to this option is that no holes need to be drilled.
