Backup Cameras & Collision Avoidance
New Safety Technology Without the New Car
If avoiding accidents and keeping you and your passengers safe in the car is a priority, it might be time to see what's new in car safety technology. The best part is, you don't actually need a new car to get it.
The U.S. department of transportation and NHTSA believe that backup cameras are such a vital safety feature, that all new cars in the U.S. are required to be manufactured with backup cameras (also called rear view cameras). But what if your car didn't come with a backup camera? Since the average car on the road is about 11 years old, chances are it didn't. Fortunately, it is a relatively straightforward process to get a backup camera system installed.
