“Why don’t all vehicles, not just trucks, have an audible warning when reversing?”

Mike Riordan, Campsie NSW

I’m sick of almost getting run over in shopping centre car over in shopping centre car parks. Why don’t all vehicles, not just trucks, have an audible warning when reversing?

All the sensors and rear-view cameras in the world are useless if the driver is distracted or just plain careless.

Add the increasing number of hybrid or electric vehicles that are near silent at low speeds, and the number of accidents in drivewaysand you have an easy fix to a growing problem.
