Vehicles with back-up cameras and/or sensors as standard on Driving the Nation

Congress ordered the back-up camera mandated by 2011, but the administration has repeatedly delayed and has now postponed the rule until 2015. This could have been Secretary LaHood’s claim to fame, but he postponed it again and again. According to kidsandcars.org, “By DOT’s own estimates, it’s delay past the statutory deadline has so far allowed between 237 and 280 preventable deaths – almost half of which have befallen young children.” Over 60% of backing up incidents involved a larger size vehicle. (truck, van, SUV)
