48-year-old New Haven resident Bradley Anders has made a bold claim that, despite having a perfectly functional rear view back up camera in his 2013 Toyota Camry, he refuses to use it, insisting on doing things “the old fashioned way.” In Anders case, this involves cracking down the window, sticking out his head, and rolling in reverse.
“I don’t need all these fancy gadgets to get out of my driveway,” Anders insisted.
He adds that when he bought his car, he tried to get it without the camera, but it comes as a standard part of the vehicle.
“God gave me two eyes and a rear view mirror for a reason. No need to bring electricity into the equation.”
His rear bumper currently has a rather sizable dent from accidentally backing into a tree alongside his driveway a few weeks ago, which Anders insists would have happened with or without the assistance of “that dang camera.”
