In order to reduce the risk of accidents or fatalities while trucks and buses reverse, the road transport ministry has mandated the inclusion of reverse parking alert system in all trucks and buses manufactured from April 2020. Apart from trucks and buses, the mandate will stand for all four-wheelers starting July 2019.
The mandate is aimed to tackle the rising incidents of trucks and buses involved in accidents while reverse parking. That is where rearview cameras will be mighty helpful, eliminating any blind spots in the process. In case the visual aid is not in place, an alert system should be present to let the driver know of any object in the path.
