Ferman Mazda of Brandon, Fla., Shares Benefits of Rear Cameras in Helping Drivers

According to Ferman Mazda of Brandon, rear cameras are a promising technology that increases a driver's rear visibility.

    TAMPA, FL, May 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Safety technology in the automotive industry has come a long way, helping to increase a driver's awareness of what is around them as well as behind them. Among the various crash avoidance systems, (1) Mazda of Tampa, Florida, is eager to share the benefits of the rearview camera for drivers. (5)

The Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducted a study that displays the usefulness of backup cameras. (3) It appears to be a promising technology that will help prevent tragedies and avoid back-over crashes. It especially seems to benefit larger vehicles such as SUVs for which rear visibility is poorer. (2)

Things that are small or low to the ground can be hard to see, no matter the vehicle. The rear camera will assist in preventing collisions with children and animals. Objects can also be avoided, which may help the driver from denting or scratching both the car and the item, as well as helping save on insurance claims and fees. (4)

Preventing a possible tragedy is extremely important, and this technology, available in many models, is worth discussing with the Tampa Mazda dealers. Almost 300 people are killed each year, along with another 18,000 who are injured as a result of vehicles backing into them. Children also have a higher probability of being a casualty in these situations. (3) A petite camera on the back of the car can be quite helpful, especially since they reduce a driver's blind zone by an average of 90 percent. (2)

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is reflecting on the possibility of having cameras included on passenger vehicles as a mandatory requirement. (2) When visiting your Tampa Mazda dealership, a rearview camera may be something to consider. (5)
