The more models with this equipment I run, the more it drops my confidence for the beeping, flashing and generally annoying the equipment.
The persistent beep – when the vehicle is so near an obstruction that the bums must be stopped – occurs at the margins can vary a lot between different car models. As provkörare I learned it pretty early on.
Drivers who rent cars often, I would think have the same experience. Snittbilisten, rarely behind the wheel of any other car than their own, learn probably feel safer.
A good friend of mine, owner of a superbly equipped Volvo XC60, had taken a position somewhere in between the safe and the critical. Until he one day in a relatively open area was put in reverse to be able to get out of there.
Slowly backwards, the track in the rear-view mirrors, no beeping. Suddenly slammed it to. Volvo had been in close combat with a flag pole. Since that day, he was directly critical of the assistant function and thus an honorary member of my club.
another good friend, in the context of strategically placed where he is working as a bilplåtslagare, has the firm belief that cars equipped with parkeringssensorer are over-represented as regards parkeringsskador. Pressed if this allows plåtisen that he can't point to any statistics to support such a small absurd relationship.
My friend's image as a gentle person who does not succumb to generalisation in time and out of season, combined with his professional integrity, in all cases deep impression on me when we occasionally bring up the topic.
I can't remind me that I encountered in something like a sensor missed. Know, however, that it depends more on the care I increasingly have observed, than that I relied on the eternal pipandet.
