You Need Some Assistance

Disclaimer: This is not a crash course in drivers ed.  This is a wake-up call to all you distracted and accident-prone drivers out there!

In today’s modern world, there are countless distractions that can cause injury to yourself and others. I can attest to this personally seeing as I have carelessly totaled a car and watching your wheel fly off is not a good start to anyone’s day. With that being said, there are lots of ways to prevent you from being ignorant like me.  There are tons of aftermarket parking and driving assist systems that could save your car from utter destruction or even your life.

Power Acoustik DRIVE ALERT

In recent studies it has been found that the average driver has an accident about every 10 years.  However, if you live in a busy city this can be cut in half to about 5 years! A major cause of accidents is negligence of checking your blind spots.  A way of drastically reducing this danger is by purchasing a system such as the GOSHERS BSDS3016.  This is a blind spot detection system that will give you audible and visual warnings if you try to change lanes when there is someone present in your blind spot.  It is a universal system so it can be put on any vehicle such as commercial trucks, RVs, fleet vehicles, or a standard automobile. Another noteworthy prevention system is the 3-in-1 Power Acoustik DRIVE ALERT.  This is a unique system that offers front collision warning, lane departure warning and a black-box recorder which records audio and video prior to a collision to aid in insurance or police investigation.

We also offer an abundance of rear and front parking sensors that you can integrate into your front and rear bumpers for reduced difficulty when parking.  Steelmate has a number of multi-sensor systems that can seamlessly be added.  They feature paintable covers for decreased visibility of the sensors. Just remember that there are two types of drivers out there: those who have been in an accident and those who have not been in an accident YET.
