Backup Cameras Focus On Safety

If you’re still driving an older model of car or truck around Danvers, you might not be aware that every car manufactured after May of 2018 is required to have a backup camera by federal law.

So what is a “backup camera” anyway, exactly?

Backup cameras are mounted on vehicles to capture a wide view of what’s behind you. The lens angle downward slightly to pick up objects a regular mirror wouldn’t, like a small child standing behind your rear bumper. These cameras send a color image of the area behind your car to a monitor in the dashboard, or sometimes a smaller monitor within the rear-view mirror itself. There's no need to switch them on, as they activate whenever you put your vehicle in reverse.

Cameras are not a replacement for awareness, but they add another level of safety to today’s increasingly safe vehicles.
