Getting to Know the Backup Camera

Backup cameras are appearing on more and more vehicles, and for cars produced in 2018 or later, they are mandatory. Do you know what a backup camera is? In this post, we'll explain why they are so important.

The backup camera sits at the rear of the vehicle and shows you what is right behind you so that you don't back into an obstacle or person. It has been shown to reduce accidents in test studies that the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has done. The presence of the camera reduced the rate of backing over an obstacle from 100 percent to 43 percent, showing just how much the camera improves your ability to avoid collisions.

If you want to try one out for yourself and you live near Rock Hill, SC, come to Honda Cars Rock Hill and try a test drive.
