Not nanny government. The government is being manipulated by crooked people for their own personal financial benefit.

What better way to set yourself up for life than to get your product mandated by Congress?

Some lobby that's heavily invested in rear view camera manufacturers is using their influence to cash in.

Same deal with the tire pressure monitors. Someone's manipulating the government to cash in. Probably the same lobby as the cameras.

Tire pressure monitors and rear view cameras are nifty gadgets for car dealers to upsell in a vehicle. They are NOT essential safety devices.

The reason tire pressure monitors would be "essential" is because people are too lazy or too stupid to look at their tires once in a while, actually check the air pressure once in a while, and pay attention while they're driving.

TPMS are required because Firestone sold Ford a bunch of tires, said don't run them under X PSI, then Ford stuck them on a vehicle and told people to run them below that, then people didn't pay attention when they got low and after a while running at something like 12% below minimum inflation (per Firestone) they would blow out. There was issues at two levels in that whole deal, and we get to pay for them both.

I hadn't heard about rear-view camera mandates. I guess after that there's no way to get a truck without a big fugly screen where a radio should be? And what about states where a video-playing screen within view of the driver is illegal?

Manipulated by outside interests or not, the government is becoming our nanny.

That's why I have no plans to ever buy another newer vehicle, even if it means having to go to Case for engine parts and swapping in a heavy-duty manual trans.
