Rear View Safety, a distributor of vehicle safety solutions, including backup camera systems, backup sensor systems, driver fatigue systems, mobile DVRs, and dash cameras, now provides several resources to help with compliance with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) 111 law.
FMVSS 111 went into effect on May 1. Part of the new requirement regulates a necessary view behind a vehicle. The field of view extended area is a 10- by 20-ft. space directly behind the vehicle. The rule applies to vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of under 10,000 lbs.
Most Rear View Safety cameras can comply with FMVSS 111. The company recently tested some of their cameras to determine mounting requirements. Rear View Safety has also released a line of cameras specifically addressing the regulation. The RVS-659 Flush Mount Backup Camera (FMVSS 111 Compliant) mounts flush to the back of the vehicle and is fully compliant when properly mounted. The RVS-659 also has 700 TV lines and a 170° viewing angle.
