Reverse parking sensors to become compulsory on new cars


The automobile innovations these days are at their peak and carmakers are giving their best effort to develop highly advanced sedans with more functionalities and flexibilities. While the viewpoint of safety of cars and travelers has always been the primary concern, Indian Government is reported to take a stand for the complete safety for the car owners.

According to recently given official information, Indian Government soon is going to make reverse parking sensors compulsory for all new vehicles. This step is entirely intended to strengthen its latest venture of road safety in India along with ensuring the security of the drivers and travelers. The soon-to-be-announced command is completely proposed to deal with the risk posed to kids and pedestrians while using back gear in the car.

According to Mr Abhay Damle, the Joint Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport and Highways of India, “Although most cars come equipped with rear view mirrors which are adequate for detecting vehicles behind a car, but they are inadequate on for detecting small children or objects close to the ground, which falls in the car’s blind spot. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) will soon issue a notification to make rear-view sensors mandatory in all vehicles.”

The amendment will be mandatory for all the upcoming cars in India and is pondered for lessening the risks of accidents which occurs while rolling the car back. Previously, a number of car makers have effectively offered back parking sensors in top-end variations of their sedans. But all of them are an additional attachment and used to depend on the wish of the purchaser if they want to install it in their vehicles or not. The going-to-prescribed rule to install rear parking sensors as mandatory in every new will be more advantageous for reducing the volume of accidents.
