The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released a proposal that would require all new cars by 2014 to have a rear view camera and interior display.
The proposal would expand the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush in February 2008. It is named for 2-year-old Cameron Gulbransen of Bellport who was hit and killed in 2002 as his father moved a family car in the driveway of their home.

In the driveway of his home in Syosset on Wednesday, July 7, 2004, Dr. Greg Gulbransen views the image of his son, Scott-7 on a video screen taken from a camera mounted on the rear of his car that displays the area behind the car. Two years ago, Gulbransen ran over his 2 year old son, Cameron accidentally in the driveway of their home in Woodbury.
