The Safety of Back Up Cameras!!

In April 2014 the NHTSA enacted the backup camera mandate. By 2054 when all vehicles will have backup cameras, it is estimated that 58+ lives will be saved every year. Some new vehicles have some very cool safety features. Let’s look at the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado as an example:

1. The rear vision camera system has dynamic guide lines to allow the driver, when in reverse, to view objects directly behind the vehicle.

2. The safety alert driver seat warns the driver of potential traffic danger using directional vibration pulses from the seat cushion.

3. Lane departure warning alerts the driver when the truck drifts over a lane line when traveling at least 35 MPH.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all vehicles came standard with these safety features? To see some of these features in person, just come in and any of the Woody’s Automotive Group sales team will gladly show you!
