Can backup camera save lives? Here are the facts In the U.S. at least fifty children are being backed over by vehicles EVERY week. The predominant age of victims is one year olds. (12-23 months).

I believe that making a rearview camera standard equipment will help in reducing these tragic numbers. This can also be a item to improve a shops bottom line by offering a add on camera system.
