Support of the Cameron-Gulbransen Kids and Cars Safety Act of 2005

Last year, more than 100 children were killed by vehicles whose drivers simply could not see them in the blind zone behind the vehicle. According to the CDC, nearly 7,500 children were treated in US emergency rooms between 2001 and 2003 for backover injuries. These incidents could be prevented if drivers had a way to see or detect what is behind them while backing up.
