So the lives of multiple girls who did not personally own those lives were saved?

Evolution hasn't ended. These basketball players meant well, but now genetically inferior drivers are more of a problem.

Who panics when you hit another car? Accidents suck, but once you hear the thud/crash, it's over- unless you're a moron who goes and runs over your own daughter immediately afterwards.

The state is going to want to know which of these kids is the EMT, because that was a life threatening situation if the car was preventing major blood loss, or the motion involved in her rescue would have put her in further peril. Who was the expert that assessed the situation? These kids should all be summoned before the courts for practicing emergency medical techniques without a license. The state wants its money, and there is no way some punk kids can ruin the integrity of that EMT certification by simply moving a car off some flattened filly on a whim.

Valley High baseball went 1-23 this year, scoring only 26 runs all year long while giving up 284.
And half the players were JV players, who couldn't even make that team.

It's not close to $1000. Heck, even Amazon will will sell you a complete aftermarket kit (camera, screen and wireless) for around $100. Once implemented as OEM equipment, the economies of scale will cut that price much farther - and give you nice extra features like GPS built in.

Also, that's not 200 people a year who don't look behind them, that's 200 dead people - mostly children. Many more are hurt (like the kid in this story), and uncounted property damage is caused (think of all the people in parking lots who just back out without looking).

Lobbyists will fight it though, for the same reason they fight almost all safety equipment: it's more profitable to kill and maim people than protect them.
