New Cars in U.S. Required to Have Backup Cameras

posted by Papa Keith -

Apparently there has been a new mandatory federal regulation made for your whip. All new cars in the U.S. must be equipped with backup cameras. From this parking should be a breeze!

According to USA Today, the requirement was solidified last week Wednesday, requiring vehicles to have cameras at the rear and video consoles in the dash to display what the vehicle is backing up into. 

“The regulation is a monumental advancement of safety for children, pedestrians, bicyclists and other vulnerable road users,” Cathy Chase, president of Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, said in a statement.

Not only will this improve parking but several say accidents should decrease. It is reported that car collisions on the back end kill about 200 people a year and injure more than 12,000.

Although this may make vehicles more costly, it will also make us all safer.
