PRECO’s customers have reported that the use of PreView Radar systems have reduced backing accidents by upwards of 85 percent. PRECO Electronics’ CEO, Jim Bean shared that, “Over the past 16 years since PRECO has been building object detection radar systems, our customers have reported zero fatalities related to backing accidents with our systems installed. And while collisions may occur, our technology is reducing the severity of accidents, vehicle downtime, repair costs and insurance premiums. The return on investment is proven.’’
