Every New Car Will Have a Rear-Facing Camera in 4 Years

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a final rule to require all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds, including all cars, SUVs, vans, and trucks to have backup cameras by May 1, 2018. The backup cameras must have a 10-foot by 20-foot zone view behind the vehicle. The backup camera system will also be required to meet NHTSA requirements for image size, linger time, response time, durability, and deactivation.  United States Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx explained that the official ruling came out of a concern for primarily child safety: Safety is our highest priority, and we are committed to protecting the most vulnerable victims of backover accidents — our children and seniors. As a father, I can only imagine how heart wrenching these types of accidents can be for families, but we hope that todays rule will serve as a significant step toward reducing these tragic accidents.
