It's the cure for "Parkus Parallelus Phobias" and backing over things. Our optional Park Distance Control uses ultrasonic waves emitted from sensors in the rear bumper to measure the distance between the car and any objects in its rearward path. When the car gets within five feet of an object at least as tall as the rear-bumper, a beeping sound issues a warning. As your MINI gets closer to the object, the beeping intervals become shorter, until a full tone tells the driver that the car is about a foot from the object behind it. Then, you stop backing up and triumphantly avoid having to pay your insurance company a deductible.
