National Highway Traffic Safety Administration chief David Strickland says he has no time frame for finalizing delayed rear-visibility rules that would require automakers to install back-up cameras in all new vehicles.

Congress approved legislation in 2007 requiring the government to set rear-visibility rules by early 2011, but Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood has repeatedly exercised his power to delay the rule. The department didn’t make its last self-imposed deadline set for Dec. 31, and hasn’t set a new deadline.
