So the NICE Corridor has a speed limit of 120Kmph, I can imagine all vehicles with constant Beeeep over the highway.
Some roads between Salem and Coimbatore has a speed limit of 100Km/h, what about those?
Whats likely to happen is, manufacturers will simply put this buzzer behind a single fuse, which customers will remove (if not the showroom themselves). Much like saree guards on sports bikes.

The driver's irritation from the buzzer will cause more accidents than prevent.

Default Rear parking sensors to be made compulsory on all Indian cars

Am somewhat shocked by the attitude shown by BHPians on this thread. Rear parking sensors AND rear cameras are compulsory in several parts of the world - making them compulsory in India makes eminent sense.

In fact, the case for government regulation to protect pedestrians is far greater than the case for regulation to protect car owners. Car owners have the ability to choose the features they want - and it's their prerogative if they prefer a touch screen display over a body which can maintain structural integrity. But pedestrians can't choose what car owners buy - hence banning killer bull bars, making pedestrian safe bumper and bonnet designs, and rear cameras / sensors compulsory makes far more sense than making air bags compulsory.

On the speed sensor - I agree - especially one set at 80 kph is ridiculous.

There is a valid point in what you say. Others are saying measure towards road safety need prioritizing, and several other measures, many mentioned in this thread, are more urgently required than rear sensors and cameras- which are also required.

Yet another joke, one must say. We have enough of rules already, but who cares? Most people in the city drive with their rear view mirrors folded in, let alone looking at them when necessary. Why don't they start with the simplest of rules and ensure that they are followed by everyone, such as not driving on the other side of the road, not parking where not allowed, use indicators when necessary etc.? To be very honest, I am left searching for suitable derogatory remarks for those who come up with such rules and worse believe that this will solve all our problems.

As we are on the sensors, even a front sensor will be good idea in India. Because bumper to bumper traffic really means most of the time bumpers of automobiles are too close to comfort.

I have in fact seen some small cars being below the last point of those high dump trucks.

I hope they make Functional Tail-lamps compulsory too... along with head lamps...
I am sure this will help reducing the amount of fatalities on road.

They would freely cross paths with reversing cars and then in case of any hit/ collision, the driver will be held at entire responsibility by saying “you have the camera and could have seen me coming, you should have stopped”.
ORVM and IRVMS do not provide adequate rear view in all cars. Please try reversing a Nano and let us know.

The onus ideally should be on pedestrian, but this is INDIA.
They are anyways free to cross paths even now, so in our world Onus is on driver to avoid hitting them.
They would blame you even if you don't have a camera, since no one will notice if you have/ don't have a camera when they are hit.

Well I beg to differ in opinion.

The main intent of having IRVM and ORVMs is to provide sufficient indirect view of the area behind for which the driver does not have a direct view (A camera also provides indirect view). If these mirrors are designed so poorly that they do not serve their intended purpose then the Manufacturer should be held at fault and be legally compelled to revise its design.

The Governement cannot charge innocent car owners by way of mandating additional gadgets, just because it is so lethargic/ lazy that it does not want to impose the rules set by none but itself.

Agreed, Manufacturer should design them in efficient way but most new cars have poor rearward visibility these days ( Thick C pillars, high sill etc ).

Both my cars , Baleno and Nano are not the easiest to Park while reversing.
This is where sensors come really handy, I can park them in tightest of spots without worrying too much.

For eg : how will I see bonnet or bumper of a Narrow car like Alto when I am reversing in my Baleno? Sensors come handy I such scenario's.
Of course above example is for tight parking spots.

I found Premier Padmini to be easiest to park, since you had a good direct view and could see both rear corners of dicky.
Also even if Sensors are mandate, its not that bad an idea as they would not add too much to the cost of vehicle.
