Backing is probably the driving maneuver most likely to lead to an accident. Sensors and cameras may be making it "safer" but new safety rules (higher doors and sides) and style considerations are making visibility worse! And since many backing accidents occur on private property (parking lots) both drivers will be considered at-fault: the police usually do not investigate or make a determination of fault. Your insurance pays for your damage and you get rated for an accident. How can you avoid this? Easy, park farther out and choose a spot you can safely back into or one that you can pull through.
