Gov’t delays requiring rearview cameras in cars — Associated Press
Rearview cameras in cars seem like a good idea. Who wants to accidentally back over a child or a pet, right? It’s upsetting, not to mention whoever the child or pet belonged to is probably going to hold it against you forever.
Let’s make rearview cameras required by law.
In fact, let’s make rearview and frontview cameras required, because kids and pets can get under the front of your car too, and running over them is bad, no matter what direction you’re going.
I’ve seen TV commercials where cars can detect obstacles in their path and stop automatically to avoid a collision. That’s great. Let’s make that required too.
In fact, let’s make so many features required by law that you can’t even buy a car anymore for less than $50,000.
You know what else is a good idea? Freedom, which is the reason we started up this country in the first place. Let people buy and sell whatever they want.
