I’m sure none of us will be opposed to this new mandatory federal regulation! All new cars in the U.S. are now required to have… backup cameras! (🗣️ Now there should be no excuses why people can’t parallel park! 😩😂)
According to USA Today, the regulation went into effect Wednesday. It now requires all new cars to have rearview cameras and video displays in their new models.
“The regulation is a monumental advancement of safety for children, pedestrians, bicyclists and other vulnerable road users,” Cathy Chase, president of Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, said in a statement.
Safety advocates say the regulation will help prevent accidents. Backover crashes kill about 200 people a year and injure more than 12,000.
