To increase safety in road traffic, the EU will require various driver assistance systems from July 2024 - including the reversing camera.

The year 2024 will bring some changes for drivers.

These concern, among other things, the driver's license, registration and assistance systems in the car.

One change even affects almost all drivers: exchanging the old driving license for a new one.

Those born between 1965 and 1970 must have exchanged their driver's license by January 19, 2024.

Who's next in line can be seen in the exchange table.

But the issue of security will also be at the forefront in 2024.

The EU is introducing the requirement for various driver assistance systems.

For new cars from July 7, 2024, these include, among other things, a black box, cruise control, a drowsiness and attention warning system and a reversing camera.

EU regulation stipulates that reversing cameras will be mandatory in cars from July 2024

A reversing camera is not only practical, but like reversing sensors it will soon be mandatory, as “autozeitung.de” reports.

At least that's what the EU wants.

The background: According to EU statistics, up to 95 percent of all traffic accidents can be attributed to human error.

According to the EU Commission, mandatory driver assistance systems on Europe's roads could save around 25,000 lives and prevent at least 140,000 serious injuries by 2038.

That's why the EU prescribes the following systems in addition to the rear view camera:

  • Emergency brake assistant

  • Intelligent speed assistant

  • Warning system for tiredness and loss of attention

  • Turn assistant and collision warning system

  • Tire pressure monitoring system

Rear view camera requirement from July 2024 – drivers will continue to be liable in the event of accidents

According to “futurezone.de”, the new obligation applies not only to new vehicles, but also to older cars that are sold after the introduction date.

These must then be equipped with a functioning rear view camera and/or corresponding sensors.

If a driver buys an older car with an existing reversing camera and sensors, he must ensure that the device works properly, otherwise he could face fines.

“A non-functioning reversing camera represents a violation of the reversing camera requirement and can be punished with a fine,” says Motor Vehicle Insurance Compare, for example.

If the malfunction also results in an accident, you can also face fines.

According to “bussgeld-info.de” there are the following penalties:

  • Endangering other road users when reversing resulting in an accident – ​​100 euros and 1 point

In plain language: With the introduction of the reversing camera requirement, the driver is not released from his responsibility in road traffic and, in the event of doubt, is solely liable for the resulting accident damage.

This is also confirmed by the Lawyer Search Service portal: “Despite such systems, the driver still has to make sure that an accident will not occur.”

By the way, the Federal Court of Justice has made a fundamental ruling on reversing on one-way streets.
