    Well then somebody lied to you. If that was the case I would not be working here. There is a camera that faces the outside but nothing that faces the driver. They can only access that camera if there is an accident. Because it runs through Volvo. We had a truck wreck about 2 months ago and they went through a lot of red tape to get the footage. But again no driver facing cameras in our trucks.
     
    smokey12, RebelChick and Vic Firth Thank this.

    Yes I talked to a driver today..he was probably mistaken, said they were inward and outward facing...also said there is a collision avoidance sysytem bit I can live with that. Outward facing is great but inward is a deal breaker for me when living in a truck for weeks. Also..do y'all have prepass? Your company and a couple of others are at the top of my list when I leave my current one later this year. Thanks for the updates..

    Yeah he's full of crap.
    I asked about that very thing before we ever got the trucks. And they said they had no interest and looking at a driver. Ask for tolls I have never had to pay for a toll since I've been here. Any toll is automatically paid for. Including Florida SunPass. Sam Houston Expressway. Kansas and Oklahoma Turnpike. And as far as I know everything in California. If there is a system we do not have then I don't know about it because I've never ran across one. There is collision avoidance system. As well as Lane departure and blind spot warning. Those are pretty normal for almost every company you work for. However there is no spy equipment or James Bond gadgets on any of the trucks.
     
    Lonesome, Vic Firth and smokey12 Thank this.
