AM 820 News anchor Robert Pankau spoke to ABC News correspondent Scott Goldberg about cars that will require rearview cameras in all new models starting in 2018.

The Transportation Department issued a rule Monday that will require rearview technology in many new vehicles — an effort to reduce deaths and serious injuries caused by backup accidents. The final rule issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will require new vehicles built on-or-after May 1, 2018 to meet the new rear-visibility standards. Backup accidents involving light vehicles cause an average of 210 deaths and 15,000 injuries a year, and victims often include children and the elderly.
