    So all the millions of unemployed workers quit just so they could draw 99 weeks of unemployment benefits!

    You don't understand unemployment. If you quit without just cause you cannot collect unemployment.

    If the company's letting you go then that's called termination.

    These cameras are on all the time. If a critical event is triggered the video time and location is flagged so it may be reviewed.

    Since the critical event is triggered by a system like the qualcom, the video can be sent live through the qualcom.

    It only makes sense that it works this way. No one cares what happens 10-15 secs. after a critical event; there are results or not. What everybody ( safety, lawyers, insurance, law enforcement) wants to know is what caused or led up to the event. Since you cannot turn back time and turn the camera on, you leave the camera run and flag the video at the point of the event. No other way makes sense.

    If you hear different from office staff just consider it one more thing they lie to the driver about. They need you too feel comfortable with these cameras; They do not want everyone to protest and quit.

    The cameras and the QC are totally separate...they have nothing to do with each other.

    Critical events, braking events, are triggered through the qualcom so they are connected.

    Some companys use a third party system that has its own event triggering sequence that may not be connected but the recording operation is the same. I would be more worried about separate data sources confusing the situation in this case.

    So what you're saying is that if driver drops the f-bomb during heavy breaking on camera the company will let him go so that they won't have to pay him unemployment benefits.

    So we are accepting cameras in the truck now? There was a long thread on this before. I don't trust any camera technology pointed at me in the truck. Those of you who know technology know this will be abused. And just think how happy the insurance companies would be if they could dip in on a particular video feed at any given point in time for a little loss prevention analysis.

    Not saying this is happening now, but we're not talking about someone who monitors every driver all the time. It wouldn't take much manpower to have someone randomly checking on driver habits. There could even be software installed to detect if the driver was removing his hands from the steering wheel a lot or displaying some other erratic behavior. This would trigger an alert so someone in the office could dip in on the video. All in the name of safety of course.

    The technology is here and if drivers don't draw the line somewhere it will continue to become more and more intrusive.
