  1. I agree with M , with all the young children & toddlers around how do vehicles not have back up camera’s.
    It’s mamish an isser d’oreissa not to have a BACK UP CAMERA.
    The olam should get them built in that it automatically works when the vehicle is put in to reverse, they’re not expensive, the Rabanim in town should take care of that.
