The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Administrator Nicole R. Nason recently called for a comprehensive solution to a tragic problem – children who are backed over by motor vehicles. The agency submitted to Congress a report on the effectiveness of various backover avoidance technologies currently available to consumers. NHTSA intends to work with safety advocates to educate parents and other caregivers about the importance of educational programs like “Spot the Tot” while pushing for improvements in video technology that provides drivers with a view behind a motor vehicle. Please review the NHTSA press release for more information.
