FMVSS 111 Compliant Camera Systems by Rostra

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has mandated that new passenger cars, trucks, multipurpose passenger vehicles, buses, and low-speed vehicles rated at 10,000 pounds or less GVW include camera and display equipment to significantly reduce fatalities and injuries caused by backover crashes involving children, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and other pedestrians.

The camera must be installed correctly and in a location that allows it to clearly see the area required to meet FMVSS 111 standards in order for the vehicle to comply with that standard.
