Rearview cameras, or backup cameras, have been federally required in the manufacturing of new vehicles. Why is this the case? We here at Volvo Cars Normal get that you want to be in the know, so we wrote this short article outlining exactly what backup cameras are, and why they are so necessary.

When backing out of your driveway using traditional mirrors, there's a big blindspot that you're probably aware of. The area behind your vehicle that's underneath your rear windows is essentially invisible, meaning that backing out often comes with a lot of neck craning to ensure you're not hitting anything important. Backup cameras help to fix that, by showing you a bigger visual than what you get with just your mirrors.

Safety is obviously important when driving, so we here in Normal think that backup cameras could be great for drivers. If you doubt us, just come visit and test drive a vehicle equipped with a camera today!
