RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Rear-visibility camera technology may become standard in all new vehicles under 10,000 pounds in the next few years.

The Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration presented their final ruling on the backup camera feature to the public on Monday. They want all vehicles under 10,000 pounds to feature rear visibility technology by May 2018.

The ruling includes buses and trucks that fall within that weight requirement and applies to new vehicles built on or after May 1, 2018.

The NHTSA says children under 5 account for nearly 31 percent of backover fatalities each year.
