All New Cars Are Now Required To Have Backup Cameras

As of this month, all newly manufactured vehicles sold in the U.S. are required to have backup cameras as a standard feature.

The Department of Transportation reports that more than 200 people are killed and over 12,000 more are injured each year due to “back over” crashes. Of those killed, over half are children younger than 5 or adults over 70. Rearview cameras have already been found to reduce backup-related crashes by 17 percent, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Do you think this will help or should people just pay attention?
