Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said he'll meet with White House officials in an effort to finalize a regulation that could lead to rearview cameras in all vehicles.
In February, LaHood delayed proposed regulations intended to help eliminate blind zones behind vehicles that make it difficult to see pedestrians. He set a new deadline of Dec. 31.
In an interview Thursday, LaHood said it is his goal to finalize regulations by year's end.
"We have a meeting with the White House about this in the next few days, so I hope that they see the importance of this the way we do," LaHood said.
