The NHTSA (Nation­al High­way Traf­fic and Safe­ty Admin­is­tra­tion) is tak­ing pub­lic com­ment on the need to require back­up cam­era tech­nol­o­gy on all vehi­cles. Trag­ic sto­ries have been giv­en of deaths and injuries as a result of being hit by a vehi­cle while back­ing up. Back­up cam­eras could be installed on all vehi­cles by 2014 at a cost of $60 to $300.
