Lawsuit to be filed over rear-view video systems recommendation
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The federal government says it will add rear-view video systems to its list of recommended features for automakers.
In 2008 Congress imposed a 2011 deadline for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue a rule on vehicle rear visibility that could help prevent accidents while in reverse.
The department has delayed its final ruling four times since the law took effect.
Wednesday advocate groups and two parents are expected to file a lawsuit which claims that the department has taken more than twice as long to issue rules than the law intended.
