Vehicle safety remains important for customers, manufacturers and now lawmakers are paying special attention to make vehicles even safer. Advocates are currently pressing for all car manufacturers to make rear backup cameras and sensors a requirement for all new model vehicles to help save lives.
Currently the Detroit News cites two politicians are working with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to finalize regulations that will make backup cameras an industry standard. This is in response to the number of injuries and deaths related to victims being accidentally run over, especially small children. Advocacy group Kids and Cars along with advocate Karen Pauly, who backed over and killed her own son, are working to make the sensors a requirement as well.
A recent Cars.com article praised Honda, Kia and Hyundai for making backup sensors and cameras standard on all new vehicles, making them the leading manufacturers with this standard feature on almost all models.
