The article focuses on the proposal of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on reforming the rear-visibility standards of all automobiles. NHTSA has made this measure as an answer to the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act of 2007, wherein the rule is expanded to cover vehicles weighed 10,000 pounds or less by identifying an area behind the vehicle that a driver can see while the vehicle moves backwards. The proposed regulation was drafted on December 7, 2010 and reactions would be passed until February 7, 2011.
