Rear parking sensor is said to be the premium feature from long while the automobile manufacturers sell this service in their top end variants with a bit of extra money. Although, rear parking sensor makes more sense in day to day life where the city space is shrinking every then and now casting a demand over the driver to be more careful while taking some serious reverse action.

This attribute of security is now catching the eyes of Indian government so as to speak the mandatory imposition is getting ready and will be made available with rear parking sensor across all the cars soon.

In the same context, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Mr. Abhay Damle , were seen acknowledging, “Although most cars come equipped with rear view mirrors which are adequate for detecting vehicles behind a car, but (sic) they are inadequate on for detecting small children or objects close to the ground, which fall in the car’s blind spot. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) will soon issue a notification to make rear-view sensors mandatory in all vehicles.”

This step might seem very adamant towards the 'still growing industry' which are tagging such features into the automobiles, but in the viewpoint of statistics which are directing towards the increased road accidents in which street pedestrians getting injured, children getting struck being into blind spot of the car while taking reverse and various other situations where a mishap is on the verge, this is a greater chance to secure the public and the property as well.

Even two wheeler sector also got a hit in this wave of safety campaign, as this is clear by the words of Damle itself, “The government has already made it compulsory for all two-wheelers, which account for the highest share of accidents in the country, to either have the anti-lock braking system (ABS) or the combined braking system (CBS) by April 2019.”

Now for the information, KK Kapila, chairman, International Road Federation stated that India will host, for the first time, the International Road Federation’s four-day World Road Meeting (WRM 2017) from November 14-17, 2017. About 3,000 road safety, infrastructure, and transport experts from across the world will take part in the World Roads Meet. The major highlight of WRM 2017 will be a summit of transport ministers from various countries. The theme of the WRM, which is being organized by International Road Federation, is ‘Safe Roads and Smart Mobility: The Engines of Economic Growth’”

The rule will certainly bring a positive change towards the road safety and will definitely save the lives of many innocent pedestrians and children. As the nation is aware of some gruesome reasons of accidents like intoxication, over speeding and negligence of traffic rules, these added safety measures from time to time imposed by the government will be a boon to the overall well-being of the general masses.
