    Been with my current company for 2 years, now they’re talking about outward facing cameras because of another drivers incidents. 6 drivers where I am now, trying to get ideas on new companies that dont have cameras and let you run outlaw. Wanna stay with a small company, couple trucks, paper logs, the whole 9. Allentown Pa area.

    Good luck! With your future jail time.

    Outward camera are good, can benefit you in an accident.
    Paper outlaw, man you better not have a phone cause it is tracking you.
    Fuel cards, street cams, bol, and a chicken coop. All means that can trace how you run.

    Outward facing cameras are no big deal, they can't watch you. Inward facing cameras are the ones that could invade your privacy.

    Also, running with no cameras is not running outlaw. Since the ELD mandate, very few are true outlaws anymore. I think you need a better understanding of outward facing cameras and what running outlaw actually mean.

    The opposite of what you see at the truck stops. Paper logs, non neutered trucks, doesn’t require a computer to run their life, has a radio, doesn’t wear flip flops, wants to get home and not do a 34 at a truck stop... shall I go on?

    Again.. drivers are their worst enemies and always have been... when they think running illegal does anything but aid their handlers in screwing them and making them scapegoats, suckers and clowns.. When so many hillbillies are willing to work for free.. they still wonder why the pay is what it is and why there are few decent drivers jobs left.

    Even though this guy comes across in a blunt way, he's right. You gotta protect yourself, not only with incarceration, but health insurance, retirement.
    The companies your wanting to go with are going to rape you like this guy says.
    I used to run the load boards and made good money running loose leaf logs and e-log came in and I had to change. Left flatbed and leased on to a private company that pays for everything.
    I still run 700-750 miles every day and home every 5-5.5 days for a reset.
    Be smart!!!
