NEW YORK - All new vehicles will soon need to have back-up cameras.

Starting in 2018, all new cars, SUVs and many light trucks will have to have the rearview technology.

New rules from the Transportation Department will require that drivers have a field of vision measuring at least 10 by 20 feet directly behind the vehicle.

Officials say the technology will reduce back-over crashes which cause about 200 deaths and 15,000 injuries per year.

The new rule takes effect May 1, 2018.
