    One way to (test) play with them watching you. Take a paintball gun. Red ball. Make it look like you committed suicide. :biggrin_25517:

    They want to see me scratch my backside? So what.
    The point is you dont own that truck. You become the owner and you can decide what cameras go where. Yet as long as you are a company driver refusing to accept the costs of driving your own rig? You have to accept they want to know why you put their rig in the ditch. Deal with it!

    My company has driver facing cameras, doesn’t bother me a bit, Iknow what activates them and I avoid doing that, I’m not paying for the truck so they can put what ever safety devices they want to protect THEIR ASSEST
    Be safe everyone

    What activates them? Loud music, using your phone?

    Typically hard braking or a swerve.

    That’s what usually happens when somebody looks up from his text messaging to see he’s bearing down stopped traffic.

    Can you imagine what hell will break lose if you rear-end a car with your 80k lbs rig? The thought of that should make the driver think 1000 times before texting on his phone!
    It is criminal to text while driving an 80k lbs truck.
