Back up a sec: what’s a ‘rear-view visibility system?’

Your car will soon have something called a rear view visibility system” (otherwise known as a video camera) that helps you actually see behind you as you back up.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will begin phasing the cameras into 2016 models. The cost per vehicle is about $130, though the agency estimates most automakers will already have put in cameras way before the deadline.

Thanks, consumer demand.
