Although backup cameras are suitable for a wide variety of vehicles, garbage trucks have particularly poor rearward visibility. Many backup accidents involving garbage trucks have resulted in expensive damage to vehicle and property, while others have resulted in severe injuries or death. A center positioned backup camera with a birds-eye view allows the driver to see, with precision, the area around their rear bumper and gate.
Cameras are automatically engaged when the garbage truck is in reverse, and screens can range from 4 inches to 8 inches in diameter. The video below shows a backup camera installed by Movin’ On GPS. The owner of this vehicle will enjoy excellent backup visibility, and reduced risk of a backup accident.
