Bad Parking Under Spotlight

One in three people in Europe have experienced a parking incident in the last five years, Autoblog reported on Wednesday, citing a new a new study released by leading auto manufacturer Nissan.
The research, conducted by Britain’s YouGov, surveyed 9,177 drivers across the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain to identify the causes and effects of parking prangs, found that more than three out of ten drivers (33%) reported damaging their car in the last five years, with 16% of those suffering car damage while in the act of parking.
In four out of five of the people surveyed, reversing proved the most challenging maneuver, with the tricky task accounting for 45% of all parking bumps; in Italy a staggering 51% of bumps were caused while in reverse.
Drivers of Estate cars should also take heed as parking incidents were highest in this popular class (27%).
To assist unsuspecting motorists and demonstrate how vehicle technology can be a welcomed driver aide, Nissan transformed a car park in Rome to demonstrate the benefits of its Around View Monitor (AVM) and Moving Object Detection technology from its award-winning Pulsar compact hatchback.
“Parking is a part of driving not everyone feels comfortable with so we wanted to do everything we could to assist drivers,” said Bastien Schupp, Vice President of Marketing for Nissan Europe.
“By taking this technology out of the Pulsar and installing it in a car park in Italy we have given drivers the opportunity to see for themselves how Around View Monitor can take the stress out of parking and help them park with confidence – while also helping to avoid damage to their car.”
Designed to assist with parking, the intelligent Nissan Around View Monitor system gives the driver a virtual bird’s-eye view of their vehicle as they maneuver into a space – providing a ‘safety net’ for drivers.
