BEN LEVITAN, TELECOM EXPERT, ON CAR BACK-UP CAMERA: GOVERNMENT MANDATE TO ALLOW FACEBOOK UPDATES PUTS LIVES IN DANGER




Every week, four American children are killed, backed over in their own driveways. To combat this, the National Highway Safety Administration ruled new cars must have a rear-view camera system to be sold in United States. To be compliant, this will require a camera and dashboard-mounted screen in every car. Auto manufacturers are using the mandate to connect Facebook, Twitter, and other commercial services into the screen, and it will also control the car’s entertainment, GPS, and information systems, as well.

“How did adding a safety feature give anybody llicense to provide Google and Facebook capabilities while driving? The entire concept is absurd. There are lower-cost options which would provide the same safety measures without adding distractions to the automobile experience. There is no doubt here. When these cars come out, people will die,” says Ben Levitan, who holds over 30 patents in the telecom industry.

“Distractions are already the leading cause of accidents, and connected cars are going to cause even more unnecessary deaths,” says Levitan, a national expert and a leading voice in opposition of distracted driving.

In contrast to the government mandate, lower cost devices, which detect anything obstructing the pathway of the vehicle, could save money and lives. These devices work through radar-like technology. “Actually, they’d be more effective,” says Levitan. “When there is an obstruction in the driving path, it sounds off an alert. This would keep children safe in the driveway and our roads safe for everybody, free of distracted drivers.”
