    I don't understand why they KEEP lying to us about this!, if your going to do it fine, but stop the BSing! From the camera website:

    "Video event recorder continuously monitors and captures driving behavior, and provides real-time driver feedback."

    "Continuous monitoring verifies that lessons have been applied and protects drivers, resulting in fewer preventable collisions."

    If it ONLY RECORDS in a critical event like the message says... then how do they know if ur not wearing your seat belt or using your bluetooth ??? Many drivers have received messages about both. Its a lie!

    His phone must have been on too loud and hitting the keys turned into a critical event

    Good luck to you and kudos for rejecting the lack of trust and intrusion (camera aspect) in this industry.

    If some guy in front of you locks his breaks up trying to stop to avoid whatever and you can't shut down in time to avoid rear ending him, then you are following to close. Pure and simple. If you are following so close that you can't see around the truck in front of you, then you are too close. But most of these driver today...whether it's a four wheeler or a big truck....think it's okay to set on someone's bumper. Why are you going to be following to close and rely on another driver's reaction time to control yours?

    No stupid camera watching the driver is going to prevent bad habits like following too close. You can be setting there holding the steering wheel, both hands, eyes dead on the road and be riding right on the bumper of the vehicle in front of you. Don't sound safe to me.

    Anyone that is agreeable with a camera watching the driver or anything else INSIDE the cab of the truck is foolish, IMO. You have serious issues if you think that is acceptable. Having cameras facing the cab is not going to make dangerous drivers's just going to make safe drivers quit truckin' or work for companies that don't try to jack over the driver.
    Old - School, Boomer 1, rarudi and 2 others Thank this.

    The camera idea is for insurance purposes IMO, winter is approaching & if anyone remembers Millis had quite a few accidents last winter so to cover their assets, so to speak, let's put cameras in our trucks so we can say Joe driver lost control picking his nose.
