For many years, Indian Commuters were unaware of the idea of using seat belts in cars, until the law was implemented on mandatory fastening seat belts. Now, to lower the risk of reverse collision to the pedestrian while reversing a vehicle, the Indian govt. will make it mandatory for all new vehicles to have rear parking sensors, soon.

Speaking on the upcoming rule, Mr Abhay Damle, Joint Secretary (Ministry of Road Transport and Highways) was quoted saying, 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.

Many mass manufacturers offer rear parking sensors in top-ranging variants of their products, whereas it can also be purchased that will not cost a bit more than Rs 7,000 from a dealership, while getting it from aftermarket, it will cost above Rs 3,000. It is aimed to make rear parking sensors company fitted directly from the from the factory in all new cars, right from the base trims.

The government is also working on introducing speed warning system as standard on all new cars soon, due to the rising number of over-speeding accidents and deaths caused by it. Though, it is not confirmed as to when the rule will come into effect.
