Yes, mine intermittently beeps when you are close, getting faster as you
get closer, but then changes to a continuous beep at about 6 inches.
The intermittent beep starts far enough away to be annoying when you are
deliberately getting close to the car in front - such as if you inch up
to give extra room for someone who is trying to squeeze into the gap
behind you or to block someone who is trying to push in in front, out of
turn in a queue.
It does disable itself the first time you get up to 20mph and re-enables
when you press the button or select reverse gear.
Those prats that instead of alternating when they are trying to join a
queue decide that they won't wait their turn and will instead follow the
previous car into the gap that you left or that are too impatient, pull
out of a stop-start queue into a lane marked for turning only, get up
near the front and then try and push their way in.
Mine don't they are on all the time .
Which can get pretty annoying when the edge of the carriageway is
bounded by a wall or by street furniture etc.
They can be silenced once activated so
:- pull in 'ding ding ding', parked; ding continues until you press a
button on the dash and binging stops, but the parking sensor is re-armed
again so no bing now but when they would next be activated they are
ready to go.
Traffic queuing at lights "tyres and tarmac", in nose to tail traffic I
wouldn't get within parking distance to the car in front (12"?), it
actually annoys me these people that think getting right up the chuff of
the car in front(couple of inches or so) somehow gets them up the road
Don't get me wrong massive gaps between cars makes the queue longer
than it has to be, goes back over other junctions etc but 12" seems to
me a reasonable gap
Is there no way to turn them off permanently? I guess you could remove the thing that goes bing, but that would make it harder to switch back on quickly when you want to park. If all else fails you could fit a simple switch on the binger.
If they don't bing until 12", that's cutting it damn close for parking. If you're reversing into somewhere and cannot see the wall behind you for whatever reason, you want to be warned WELL before 12".
20 cars leaving a 6" gap instead of an 18" gap makes a space in the queue of 20 feet, or 1.5 cars.
I don't have a problem with someone making a smaller gap as long as it's greater than zero. Or are you one of those type that rolls back when he starts off?
Don't know about ALL parking sensors but I feel they would all, like
mine, start with a slow beep and as you get closer they get faster and
faster until eventually the bings are so close together that it is one
Nope but the guy in front of me might be.
Didn't that Wilkinson Sword chappie post a V-similar question?
Is this just your latest nym shift Hucker?
So when you park, you only get warned infinitesimally before you collide with the wall.
The fault would clearly be his. Pedestrians and other drivers would be witnesses, so would your dashcam. If all else fails, push him. Once he's made contact with your car, you won't damage yours much by pushing him along faster than he wants to, then swerving a bit to knock him off the road. Also if you own an older car than most others, then it always costs them more.
I refuse to make allowances for morons. They need to learn to drive properly.
Wrong, as always. When you get closer to the wall than only fools
stop at in a queue, you start to get beeps from the parking sensor
and the rate increases as you get closer to the wall and even a
terminal fuckwit such as yourself should be able to work out
that you are getting closer to that wall, before you hit it.
Its nothing like as black and white as that. Terminal fuckwits
like you can stop much too close to the car in front of them
and manage to run into the back of the car in front of them too.
And when moving off, can be too stupid to notice that the car
in front of them has just stopped after it started to move off
and run into the back of the car in front of them that way too.
But are rather unlikely to get involved with such a minor
collision. That carpark was quite active when that stupid
cow drove out of the slot without looking, right into my
tow bar as I backed out. No one bothered to get involved
when it was so obvious it was her fault and we were
obviously exchanging details.
If you have one. Makes a lot more sense to not stop
so close to the car in front so you don't need one.
Which then makes it your fault, fuckwit.
Wrong when he has a tow bar.
Thereby proving to the world and your dashcam that its your fault.
You get to pay for the damage to your car and to theirs too.
Thanks for that completely superfluous proof of why
you have always been completely unemployable.
Then you get to pay for all the damage.
In fact when they have a tow bar, you
pay for all of yours and there is no
damage at all to the car in front and
he just laughs at your predicament,
just like I did with that stupid cow who
drove out of the slot without looking.
They don't when you do stupid stuff like the above.
