No matter who you are, safety is probably a top priority when dealing with anything car-related. Everyone wants to feel safe when they're driving, as the activity can bring a lot of danger with it - especially when it comes to what's behind you. That's why in May of 2018, it became federal law that any new vehicle weighing less than 10,000 pounds had to be outfitted with a backup camera.

If you don't know what a backup camera is, it's exactly what it sounds like. As you're likely aware, rearview mirrors don't allow you to see what's directly behind you if it's below the sightline of your rear window. Backup cameras do - however, they're not replacing rearview mirrors in any sense. They're meant to be used in conjunction with already existing safety features.

If you're curious about how using a backup camera would feel, be sure to visit us here at Preferred Preowned North for a test-drive of a vehicle that's been outfitted with one.
