When you buy a new car, you will inevitably have a thorough checklist outlining all of the things that are non-negotiable for you. One thing that is becoming more desirable in new vehicles is a parking sensor. This is essentially a device that will help you to park the car successfully, allowing you to park in smaller, tighter spaces.
Some parking sensors will work by beeping when you get too close to a vehicle or object, alerting you to the fact that you need to stop. Others will also be visual – you may be able to see where you are parking via a rear-view camera. Some cars are even able to park themselves using advanced self-parking technology.
Parking sensors can be a great idea if you are not that confident when it comes to parking. They can help you to learn to be better at parking – especially parallel parking – by giving you some extra guidance. Try test driving a car with parking sensors if you are unsure.
