Chlid back-over deaths devastate families across U.S.

An estimated four U.S. families each week bury a loved one—often a child—who was backed over by a vehicle and killed.

Safety advocates say such tragedies can largely be prevented by imposing new car safety rules that were expected to be implemented this week, but postponed. Those rules would have mandated that every new car and truck under 10,000 pounds built after September 2014 include a rear-view camera system. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates those changes would save 95 to 112 lives every year and prevent more than 7,000 injuries.

But the agency, when faced with a Feb. 29 deadline to come up with new rules, deferred.
