As this video demonstrates, a longtail cargo bike has a hidden danger: poor backup visibility. Because a cargo bike is longer than a regular bike, there exists a “danger zone” behind their rear wheel where the rider’s view is blocked. This video shows my attempts to develop a “backup camera” to alleviate this problem, with limited success. My camera is similar to cameras recently mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for all light vehicles.

  1. I think there is a real danger here that viewers don't understand the deeper meaning of this very important video.
    There is danger everywhere.
    Please beware!
    Thank you.

  2. Thousands of two week old babies could be killed every year if they are left under the rear wheels of cargo bikes. This head mounted tv station will be a big help in eliminating this possible potential risk of threat of injury. Thank you for eliminating this definite potential risk.
