You guys should check out the blog on the cartalk website, please
Jim Motavalli is ecstatic that NHTSA will require backup cameras in a few years
But this guy is so “progressive” . . . he also thinks car manufacturers should actually eliminate the physical external rear view mirrors
Personally, I think backup cameras are a good thing. Better to have them, versus not having them
But I think eliminating the physical mirrors leaves a lot of room for potential trouble.
Yeah, I think backup cameras are great . . . IN ADDITION to the “old fashioned” external rear view mirrors
What if the camera’s not “adjusted” correctly?
What if the camera fails to send the image to the screen?
Snow, ice on the lens, etc.
The reason I’m posting this as a new discussion is that the blog will very likely be replaced with a new one soon, and I’d like to get the opinion of the “regulars” . . . as well as anybody else who cares to respond
