    They don't sell because they are too expensive and people don't want them.
    no the more money they make as they have to install the tech package in every car.

    they won't have that problem now. the government is now forcing you to buy it.

    Classic diversion. What is your complaint then? That you might not have an excuse for backing into someone?

    Just like headlights. It's all relative.

    This is just another example of government dictating what products will be available in the open market. If a certain feature in a car becomes standard should be left to the market, and the government should not be involved in changing what the people can buy because they find there to be a benefit to something.

    If a person is dumb enough to not know where the grandson is I highly doubt they will look at the monitor when they are backing up.

    There was no excuse to doing it before. For decades on decades the vast majority of people did fine without a camera to assist them backing up.

    And multitudes of generations got by with a horse. Fear of change and the future is a sickness you know.

    Who is scared of the future? We are talking about a camera to assist people to do something in cars that they have been doing just fine without since the creation of the car.
