By 2018 All New Cars Required to Have Rearview Cameras

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

By May 2018 The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has decided that new rules to require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles will go into effect.

According to the Detroit News, the rule requires all vehicles to have technology that lets the driver see an image to detect areas to reduce death and injury resulting from back over incidents. It has been reported that Children and the elderly are often the victims of back over crashes. According to EMS World, on average, there are 210 fatalities and 15,000 injuries caused by back over crashes each year and more than half involve children under 5 or adults over 70.

Automakers — who long fought the proposal — did not endorse the final rule. The requirement was initially set to take effect in 2011, but has been delayed multiple times.

The NHTSA estimates that once all vehicles are equipped with rear-view technology, 58 to 69 lives will be saved annually.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that the rule requires all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds to come equipped with technology that allows the driver to detect objects or people in a 10-foot by 20-foot zone behind it.

Anthony Foxx, U.S. Transportation Secretary said that “Safety is our highest priority, and we are committed to protecting the most vulnerable victims of back over accidents–our children and seniors,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

“Rear visibility requirements will save lives, and will save many families from the heartache suffered after these tragic incidents occur,” acting Administrator David Friedman of the NHTSA said “We’re already recommending this kind of life-saving technology through our NCAP program and encouraging consumers to consider it when buying cars today.”

The final rule will require that all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds, including trucks and buses, will have to be equipped with rear-visibility technology by May 2018.
