Gov't to add rear-view video systems to recommended features

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The federal government says it will add rear-view video systems to its list of recommended features for automakers.

But advocate groups call the action another stall tactic, and are filing a lawsuit over the issue.

In 2008, Congress imposed a 2011 deadline for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue a rule on vehicle rear visibility.

The regulation is now 2.5 years overdue.

Advocate groups want the courts to order the Department of Transportation to issue a mandatory rule within 90 days.
