Back-up camera requirement discussions heating up
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - The battle over back-up cameras in vehicles is beginning to heat up.
Parents and safety advocates have filed a lawsuit, demanding federal action on rules that would require rear-view cameras in new cars in hopes of preventing children from being mistakenly backed over.
The suit comes on the same day the government announced it was making the cameras a "recommended feature" in new vehicles.
The auto industry says more than half of all new cars already have some back-up detection system, and say consumers - not the government - should decide whether they come with vehicles.
