    I was told this week that the driver facing cameras will be deactivated upon logon, if you have a good driving record.
    I guess the only way to know for sure is taping the lense.

    you can tape the lense, only if it is disabled, that is, you know it is disabled because they disable it because you have a good driving record, and don't damage the equipment, says Greg Koepel

    Roehl has really annoying driver facing cameras, and ARE invading the driver's privacy.

    That said, these darned things are eventually gonna wind up in all company trucks industry wide. Lawyers love'em, Insurance wonks love'em, and office bean counters love'em.

    I have said in the past a driver facing cam would be my line in the sand. Unfortunately, financial reality stood up and bit me right in the behind! I can't afford to quit the industry as a whole, and I really like the company I drive for. We are a smaller outfit, I know everybody from the President down to the newest rookie dispatcher (don't think we even HAVE a janitor!), I like the freight, most of the customers, and the steady, regular paychecks.

    I ain't gonna get rich driving here, but I have far, FAR less BS to put up with than I had at any other carrier. A Lytx DriveCam is the price I pay for all the other benefits I get. I've had the darned thing for two weeks now, been through major cities and back roads, clear roads and crap roads. I have yet to set the bloody thing off. Maybe its just my driving? Regardless, this particular camera has not become the privacy invading PITA I was scared of. I ignore it, it ignores me, we go on with the day.

    Could also be a sensitivity setting, too. We have good drivers. These cameras were a requirement of the (newish) parent company.

    though he said the driver facing camera would be disabled for drivers with good driving record, but made no mention about the microphone inside the cab, I wonder if it would be disabled as well
