That sounds absurd,first i would place a call to the DMV to verify this,most newer vehicles are equipped with back up camera's because they make the vehicle more safe for the driver and pedestrians.If this is somehow true the camera can be disabled by disconnecting the connector behind the rear gate panel,I can give you instructions for removal if you need them,thanks for your time
