Rear View Cameras in SUV

The three US automakers are planning to introduce rear view cameras to be used when backing up. There has been lots off accident involving kids on a small bike which a driver of SUV can't see with the rear view mirror or the side view mirros.

Last night i arrived at a supermarket, while waiting for a parking spot two SUV's was backing up one on the left and the other on the right. Both of them did not see each other so they both scratched each other. These were Ford Explorer and a GMC Yukon. It happened right in front of me. I had to wait untill they clear things up so i can park my car.

My 2000 Rodeo was about 33 minutes old when some Indian chick in a Denali backed into me in a parking lot. I saw her coming and sat there looking in the rear view saying, "!......NO!.........NO!!" CLUNK!
Dented the hard plastic spare wheel cover but she was smoking hot and crying so I just let it go,lol......Got a thing for Indian chicks.
