Back Up Cameras Will Be Mandatory in 2018

  NHTSA to mandate back up cameras on all new cars

Beginning in 2016, the NHTSA will start phasing in a requirement that all new cars, SUVs, trucks and vans come equipped with rear view visibility systems.

All drivers will now have a 10 foot by 20 foot view of what's behind them.

"In a 2010 report, the DOT's NHTSA said that each year 210 people die and 15,000 are injured in light-vehicle backup incidents, with about 31% of the deaths among kids under age 5 and 26% adults over 70."
