Default Parking sensors

Do
these these
things work very well? My friend has parking sensors and a backup camera in his car and they're really useful, but also come from the factory. Is it hard to install and if it is could I just pay someone to do it?

Don't waste your money. You should be able to reverse it just fine without needing those.

I trust your opinion and I certainly could park without it, but it's more of a convenience thing so I can get as close to the car behind me as possible so I have more room to park. But if you say it's a waste of money then I trust you.

After driving a car for a long time, you will learn how close you can get to things.
