This bill clarifies that a probationary driver's license applicant is permitted to use a rear view backup camera when taking the road test administered by the Motor Vehicle Commission. In addition, the bill clarifies that a license applicant may utilize a vehicle's parking sensors, which are designed to alert a driver to obstacles while parking. In 2007, Congress passed the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act which required all newly manufactured motor vehicles to be equipped with a backup camera by May 2018. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration anticipates that the law will reduce accidents involving children, persons with disabilities, the elderly, and other pedestrians who have the highest risk associated with back-over crashes. Because all new motor vehicles will be equipped with a backup camera and many vehicles are sold with a parking sensor option, it is the sponsor's intent to allow a person to use this ubiquitous technology while taking a road test.
