NHTSA Proposes Mandatory Backup Cameras in All New Cars by 2014

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has proposed requiring backup cameras on all new vehicles by 2014 to prevent drivers from backing over pedestrians.

This is going to cost automakers (and auto buyers) more than $2 billion, but I think it’s well worth the cost. The pedestrians who will be protected will mostly be small children and the elderly. These two groups make up the majority of people who are injured or killed each year by vehicles backing over them.
