There are tech advances that squeeze more performance out of your car, and there are the advances that are all about safety. This is one of the latter, and one of the best.
By 2018, all new cars will be required to have backup cameras.
The rule follows an outcry from consumer groups and families that have been touched by tragedies involving back-over accidents, especially those involving children in parking lots. They had been pushing hard against delays in implementing tougher standards. NHTSA says it has been listening.
This is a great development, and one that will save countless lives a year.
