    How much time do you get off once you make it home? 34? 48? And where are you running with them?

    A manager could but wont. It would be awful boring vid to watch some one do their job. The only people that need to be concerned about these cameras are the ones doing something illegal.

    Not true at all!
    If you are eating, smoking, changing the CB or radio station, looking at a flippin billboard or..heaven forbid, not checking your mirrors every whatever seconds. Or the multitude of other things we do each day during the course of operating a commercial vehicle that can be considered distracted driving by dimwitted management or a safety moron.
    Many many ways they can be used against a driver that have no real bearing on safety at all.

    All depends. Typically it's for a reset but also depends what the next load they have for you. Could be a little longer. But all companies aren't making money if their trucks are sitting. Think there are some people that stay out for many weeks but then are home for more days. All depends on the situation

    I go all over the place. Currently in Washington state waiting for my final load before going to Nebraska. I live close to their place in Iowa. A majority of the time it's out to Virginia or here to Washington but makes no difference to me.

    Mack any image could be used against the driver, front, back, facing the driver, looking into the toilet, these ambulance chasing lawyers will find something, they always do.

    Sure, but no harm in trying to limit what the parasites can find.
