MEDIA ALERT: PEAK Responds to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Proposed Back-up Camera Regulation

NORTHBROOK, Ill., March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "The recent NHTSA announcement mandating that all new vehicles include back-up cameras starting with 2019 models will help reduce the risks of deaths, injuries and property damage, but this rule will not be implemented for another five years. At PEAK we believe that the current standard of safety is unacceptable and drivers should not have to wait five years for a simple safety device that helps eliminate blind zones by 72-99 percent. For less than the price of a coffee maker, drivers can purchase an easy-to-install wireless back-up camera system from most major retailers -- so they can be sure to have this important technology today versus waiting for another five years for the government and auto manufacturers to act."
