When you first pass your test and purchase a car, people just want to fill her up and get out on the road. This is understandable really. After years of walking or taking public transport, all of a sudden you feel like you’ve been given some freedom, and o you just drive and drive. However, after a while you realise that life would be made seriously less difficult if you had a few gadgets to help you along the way, right? Considering this, today we’re going to spend some time looking at some of the top in car tech you definitely don’t want to overlook this year.
Whether you’ve just bought a second hand Ford Fiesta, or even if you’ve gone all out and bought the new Mazda MX 5, all the gadgets and devices listed in this post should work perfectly. Just in case you still aren’t sure about whether a gadget will work though, you can see the full car spec at Victoria Park Mazda. So, without any more delays on my part, here they are…
Lane Changing Alarm
While you should obviously keep your eyes on the road at all times, having a little alarm that sounds when you try to change lanes and there’s a vehicle in your blind spot is most definitely a big advantage. Thankfully, these devices are quite cheap to buy and easy to install. So, what are you waiting for? Head out and get one today.
These products won’t make too much of a difference to the amount of times you get caught speeding on roads with fixed cameras. However, they do interfere with the handheld police radar scanners sometimes used. So, if you’re worried there’s a speed trap on a road you’re driving along, simply turn the scrambler on and let it work its magic.
Remote Car Starter
A lot of new cars do have something similar to this on their keys, but it’s not quite as good. You can pick up remote car starters for less than £200 at the moment, and they’re a great way of saving time or showing off to friends. Just make sure you get the gadget installed by someone who knows what they’re doing, as certain parts have to be place inside the ignition, and you don’t want to mess this up as it could become costly.
Personal Alcohol Tester
Police have been using the alcohol breath test for years, and the vast majority of people who are arrested for drunk driving are convicted because of this evidence. So, being able to buy one of your own and keep it in the car isn’t such a bad idea. Even if you’ve only had one pint, you’ll be able to double check you’re not over the limit before starting the engine.
So there it is my friends. Now you know about some of the top car gadgets every young driver needs to buy this year, you should be in a better position to make your driving experience safer, and more enjoyable in the near future.
