Ralph’s Radio, with locations in Vancouver and Victoria, is the leading provider of collision avoidance systems in our area. Our company has invested large amounts of time and resources to offer our clients the best performing, most reliable products on the market. Most of our solutions even offer a factory-matching OEM warranty when purchased with a new vehicle. Every year there are more and more vehicles on the road, and distracted driving has become a major concern. For these reasons, this category is near and dear to our heart. Adding this technology to your vehicle has the capability to save lives. We break this category down into two different product types: dash cameras and forward collision avoidance systems.
Forward Collision Avoidance Systems
One of our favorite products is the forward collision avoidance system. In short, it helps you become a safer, more attentive driver. It uses a sophisticated, forward-facing camera coupled with advanced software. The unit gives both a visual display and audible alerts. While driving, it adds the following safety features:
Forward Collision Warning
When you are driving up the road and something happens in front of you that demands you immediately slow down to avoid an accident, you get an alert.
Headway Monitoring Warning
Many times, we follow too close to the vehicle in front of us. Our system will alert you if that happens so you can be a safe distance between you and the vehicle you are following. If you follow too close, there might not be enough time to slow down to avoid an accident.
Lane Departure Alert
Have you ever gotten preoccupied while driving and started to drift out of your lane? Our system will alert you to that so you can re-center your car, truck, or SUV in your lane.
Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection
Sometimes it seems like a pedestrian or cyclist jumps out in front of your vehicle and you experience a near miss. Our system will alert you to their presence. You can then take preventative measures to avoid what could be a deadly situation.
Speed Limit Indicator
Our system can often read the posted speed limit signs and alert you if you are speeding. It can be adjusted so you pick the threshold for the audible and visual alert.
Dash Cam Systems
As mentioned earlier in this article, increased traffic coupled with distracted driving means that more and more accidents happen every year. What if you could have a device installed in your personal or commercial vehicle that records everything happening around you? Proving your innocence would no longer be a concern. Ralph’s Radio has dash cam systems with a front mount, front and rear mount, and camera models that cover all four sides.
Reference Standard Installations
Once you decide that one of our collision avoidance products is right for you, the next step is a quality installation. Since 1949, our company has prided itself on performing installations that meet or often exceed the standards of a vehicle manufacturer.
See Our Interactive Displays
When you stop by either of our convenient locations, one of our team will look over your vehicle. We’ll listen as you explain how it gets used over the course of an average week. Then we’ll show you what we feel is your best solution on our interactive displays. Let us show why every year, more people turn to Ralph’s Radio for their collision avoidance systems.
