Backup Camera Safety Feature That Prevents Accidents

A backup camera, also called a rearview camera, is now required by law on all new passenger cars, as well as vans and trucks weighing less than 10,000 pounds. Whether you are shopping at our dealership showroom for a used or new car, vehicles featuring backup cameras provide you with an important safety feature.

The backup camera is a rear-mounted video camera that provides the driver with a wide-angle view of what's located below the level of your rear windshield. It's been proven very effective at reducing the risk of causing injuries or potentially fatal injuries to obstacles located behind your vehicle. This can be an especially important safety feature if you have small children. Almost one out of three backup fatal injuries occur to children age 5 or younger.

Come see for yourself how a backup camera system operates by visiting our Pitre Kia of Las Cruces showroom and taking a test drive.
