    It's all about the money. Insurance companies offer huge discounts for the cameras.

    "when you can no longer count on the good deeds of man and you need to pay for some sort of insurance to protect you against other men, that society is doomed to fail."

    It’s not only that, with these nuclear verdicts becoming the norm more insurers will require cameras.

    Very happy I went a different way than signing up with Mercer. I would have been forced to quit over this even though I run my own dashcam. It's an overstep by the company, both in principle and financially if the driver is also forced to pay for the nee equipment.

    Technically it’s illegal under the federal truth and leasing regulations to require a contractor to purchase services from A motor carrier

    That would include requirements for a specific an e-log system from the carrier. Installed by the carrier and data charges paid by the contractors....

    bull ....
