I can't see any perspective where it's a great safety feature. When my kids were smaller and we were walking out of parking lots (always along a line of cars and never in the middle of the lane), if the reverse lights came on, I would grab their hand(s), stop and wait as the driver backed out (no cars had the wide angle reverse cameras with side proximity like most do today).

If you need the reverse lights to show other drivers where your kids are that just got out of the vehicle (as mentioned above), maybe you should teach your children how to safely walk in a parking lot.

I'm surprised it's been around this long, I've never noticed it. Probably assumed a GM driver was sitting there in Reverse.
