    I've been under the impression that Roehl had driver facing cameras. But recently read a post that they did not (a respected member here on TTR, but not a Roehl driver).

    So whats the deal? Yes or No?

    Roehl driver here going on six years. They will only put a driver facing camera in your truck if you make a habit of being a bad driver and have a lot of screw ups.

    It's a matter of time before insurance companies require cameras in every truck.

    Currently driving for them now, and my first truck had one in it. Worst experience of my life. I talked to the safety manager and he said if he had it his way, ALL the trucks would have them. They know they can't put them in every truck because too many drivers would quit.
     
    aeneas and darthanubis Thank this.

    At TMC, most new trucks have the forward facing cameras, and in the reports that Safety makes frequently these cameras are quite useful. They will put driver facing cameras in units with drivers that have had issues/problems, but as has been reported and proven by them, when a driver has proved he/she has "cleaned up their act" the camera is removed.

    I think that is a pretty honorable way of handling driver-facing camera issues.

    Had a Roehl FM admit that driver facing camera in all trucks is being looked at. just a matter of time.

    So, 3 months later. Any word on Roehl finally implementing this on all of their trucks, or are they still in the testing phase still?

    I don't have one in my truck. I have no idea what their future plans are though.
