    We use Lytx as well.
    Have forward and driver facing cameras.
    After a 30 day new hire probation, we give them a cover for the driver facing camera.

    I review videos all the time and rarely contact the driver.

    The most common call I make to drivers is telling them they did a good job during an event or just getting more info that the camera didn't pick up.

    We use them mostly for insurance claims and sadly the final straw to dismiss a driver after several counseling sessions.

    Not only that but the safety department at Napa will call you when you run over a pothole asking you if the truck is ok because the camera says you had a collision.

    Well I never got a call from anyone and I blasted through hundreds of nasty potholes that set the camera off.

    The company just is not worth it. I wouldn't waste my time with a company with driver facing cameras, especially a pissant company like that one.

    The only driving job where an inward facing camera is a necessity in my opinion is a bus driver/motorcoach operator. I made the switch a year and a half to coach driving, and while my company doesn't use them, when dealing with the public, a camera can be invaluable in the case of an assault on a driver, or a he said/she said altercation or incident.

    Alot of companies going to outward inward and side cameras. They watch you so they can micro manage your driving habits and to throww you under the bus in case their is a accident. My company bust a driver eating a sandwich made him take safety classes due to to many points . 1 for activating collision (bumping dock to hard) swerving a huge pothole in Indiana. Hard brake for a deer all on video. 1 day class watching videos . How many times did they see you naked. Because last i knew eating a sandwich isnt a triggering event

    Hearing about a proposed rule requiring that drivers wear straitjackets behind the wheel would surely make at least a few of the ignoramuses at the FMCSA salivate.

    Company i drove for said covering the camera was tampering with a safety device. They didnt care if you was parked either.
    Its funny how they use technology to monitor and regulate , but not to pay a driver for his downtime when all the data is there
     
    Jarhed1964 and smokey12 Thank this.
