    MERCER is now going to require all contractors current and future to install cameras in their trucks with download capabilities by the office personnel and with the system that has a capability of inward facing.

    New contractors have to get them by then. Existing is spread across 15 months. Randomly picked monthly by who your coordinator is.

    Regardless I think it’s a bit over the top I mean it really goes to show that they don’t even trust the people they hire on the contract with....

    I agree. I have a camera but i control it and who sees it. This will lead to nothing good.
