In certain circumstances, drivers are left with a big question mark when it comes to backing up. Whether you’re surrounded by larger vehicles or the walls of your garage, having your vision obscured while you’re trying to back up can be a bit nerve-wracking. That’s where the Volkswagen Rear Traffic Alert system comes in.

With the Rear Traffic Alert feature in your Volkswagen vehicle, rear sensors are able to detect when another vehicle or pedestrian is crossing your path while in reverse. That way, when pulling out of a parking spot, your vehicle is able to sense when another car is coming and give you an audio warning. If you don’t react quickly enough, the vehicle will automatically apply its brakes to help avoid a collision.
