    Did orientation last week with Heartland Express. As others have reported here recently, they now prohibit the use of any cams in their trucks, including ones that face the road as well as ones that face the driver.

    Correction: I said that Trimac had both forward facing and driver facing cameras but I learned that they only have forward facing.

    something to remember about the inward facing cameras, is that they're like any cctv camera in that there is only so much recording memory space, which is why they loop, and record over anything older. its different for every company, i'm out here in the oil field and the ones we have go back and forward 30 seconds when it goes off. the funny part is that here in the oil field its usually on because we hit so many bumps that its always setting it off. so long as you're not doing anything dumb just before it goes off then you're fine.
    I dont understand the people who think its watching them 24/7. they would need one person per driver to watch all that. just think of the logistics. I use to worry about them until i had another driver drop this knowledge on me.

    Whenever the first company to install them did not have a mass exodus of drivers, the battle was lost.

    The battle may not be over. Some large companies such as Swift and Heartland Express have learned the hard way that with driver-facing cameras also come some new and potentially very expensive financial risks, so they got rid of them. Heartland doesn't even allow forward-facing cameras in their trucks. I'm guessing they got bit pretty bad by one of them at some point.
