Backup cameras and backup safety systems have been around for awhile. Sadly, most vehicles on the
road today either do not have them as an option, or you have to purchase a costly premium package and
get features you may not want.|
In 2010, the federal government proposed new safety standards for all
new vehicles produced after 2014. If the measure goes through, all vehicles will have some type of
backup camera system as standard equipment. Unfortunately, this still leaves millions of vehicles
today without an important piece of safety equipment.
Statistics from the website: http://www.kidsandcars.org
Every year, thousands of children are hurt or die because a driver backing up didn't see them. These incidents for the most part take place in residential driveways or parking lots.
* The predominant age of victims are one year olds. (12-23 months)
* Over 60% of backing up incidents involved a larger size vehicle. (truck, van, SUV)
* Tragically, in over 70% of these incidents, a parent or close relative is behind the wheel.
The good news is that there are many different options available. Not only does it improve the overall safety of the vehicle,
but it aids drivers to park more effectively without the fear of damaging their own, or someone else's car.
And, it can be done in a way that it looks like the system came directly from the factory.
