    I know (I hope anyway) you are joking, but just so you know...
    There is actually guidance on this. If you do it yourself and it's not required by the motor carrier it's off duty. If your company for some strange reason requires you to watch scotties videos, then it would be on duty.

    I’m sure they probably are Scotty, but i don’t see any of them constantly berate their fellow drivers over the stupidest of things.

    DON’T PREACH IT IF YOU AIN’t gonna live it!!!

    You are trying to fight truth and facts with nonsense. #Truth & #Facts they always win. Get used to it.

    “All the other guys are bending the rules so I can too” is a poor argument. And if any of the others were posting here that somebody should be fired for breaking a law (one that a lot of people break, therefore making it ok at least by your latest reasoning) then I would’ve told them the same thing. It’s not you personally. And the couple of your videos I’ve watched do point out that we need higher training standards, that it needs to be more difficult to get a CDL. But as you told me months ago, that wouldn’t get you views. So I’m failing to see how you’re “doing the most to help this industry” by showing people on the phone. You keep breaking the laws you want, and I’ll break the ones I want, and we’ll both be happy.

    You can't be serious. I'm starting to think you really do believe Swift's training overrides State laws.

    Agreed. We need better standards and we should lead by example in all aspects of life. What's that saying something like, be the change you want to see? This means if you're going to be a snitch and cry about "Super Truckers" then don't create a situation out of thin air that makes events happen to document in the first place and you BETTER well be walking the line dead on to the letter of the law. The minute you break laws then you're no better than the very ones you complain about. And for Dog's sake instead of making fun of a newb and waiting for them to take off a hood...HELP THEM AVOID IT! Teach them something. It's contagious!

    To answer the OPs question, I would probably leave the industry, if I were forced to drive with a driver facing camera.

    Especially if they gave me a mess of paperwork saying what they would do if they didn't like what they saw and heard.

    Dude, you talk about everyone else doing unsafe stuff while driving and being distracted....look at yourself. Look how much energy and attention you waste to focus on what someone else is doing versus concentrating on actually DRIVING YOUR OWN TRUCK.

    You really need to mind you're own business. It's absolutely amazing to me that someone hasn't given you a stone cold stunner or inflicted severe bodily harm to you yet over your busy body hypocritical videos.

    Just sayin
