The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a ruling in March that eventually all vehicles weighing less than 10,000 pounds will be required to have some form of rear visibility technology.

An average of 210 fatalities and 15,000 injuries occur each year as a result of back-over collisions, with children under the age of five years old accounting for 31 percent of such fatalities and adults over the age of 70 accounting for 26 percent.
