Chevy Rear Cross Traffic Alert safety system
Chevy’s Rear Cross Traffic Alert works by using rear-mounted radar sensors to monitor what’s going on directly behind your vehicle. The system activates when you put it into reverse, and it acts as an extra set of eyes for you. If you start backing up and another vehicle approaches, you will hear a beeping noise from the system, alerting you that rear traffic is approaching. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert safety system is especially useful in crowded parking lots, when it can be hard to see if any other vehicles are approaching.
