Backup cameras can't completely prevent backover accidents

Backup cameras (also referred to as rear visibility technology) have become increasingly common throughout the last decade. As of last year, they've been required on all new vehicles that weigh under 10,000 pounds. People with cars that don't have backup cameras can have them installed, typically on the license plate holder or the rear bumper.

Accidents can result in amputations

According to the consumer health care website WebMD, there are approximately 1.8 million amputees living in the United States. Their data reveals that amputations of the leg are the most common. Toe, hand, arm, finger and foot amputations follow close behind. While many of these result from illness, many people's limbs are amputated following accidents such as car crashes and fires.

Data published by the Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning shows that between 2014 and 2018, there were approximately 131 motorcycle fatalities each year. This marked an increase of over 13 annual deaths over the previous 5-year period. An increasing number of motorcyclists are dying in crashes because they're not wearing helmets when they take to the open road.
