Mandated Backup Cameras

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued regulations this week requiring all new vehicles to have backup cameras by 2018. The NHTSA says this will help prevent some of the 210 deaths and 15,000 injures per year related to backup incidents.

Do you have a backup camera? What are your thoughts on the requirement? If you don’t have one on your car, are you considering an aftermarket camera for safety reasons?
