NHTSA to require Backup camera on all vehicles by 2019

“The recent NHTSA announcement mandating that all new vehicles include back-up cameras starting with 2019 models will help reduce the risks of deaths, injuries and property damage, but this rule will not be implemented for another five years. At PEAK we believe that the current standard of safety is unacceptable and drivers should not have to wait five years for a simple safety device that helps eliminate blind zones by 72-99%. For less than the price of a coffee maker, drivers can purchase an easy-to-install wireless back-up camera system at most major retailers so they can be sure to have this important technology today versus waiting for another five years for the government and auto manufacturers to act.”

For Clint Bowyer, more winning and less drama the goal for 2014

Some of Clint Bowyer's month of February has involved hunting and dirt tracks, two parts of his life that are part of his roots, his core being.

Balancing that mix of “happy-go-lucky” and an ability to relate to the common fan, along with his driving prowess and focus on Sundays, will be key to seeing him return to the heights he achieved in his first year at MWR.
