Don't have one of these on your car? It's going to be mandatory soon!

If you don't drive a car with a backup camera on it, sooner than later, you're going to need one! 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a proposed rule Monday requiring all new light vehicles — including cars, SUVs, trucks and vans — to have "rear-view visibility systems," in effect, requiring backup cameras.

The rule -- which would be final in 60 days -- would start phasing in on May 1, 2016 models and be at 100% May 1, 2018.
