    Karma can be a real beatch. Got called in to review a captured "following too close"! I knew I should have just ignored the camera comments, but NOOOOOOOooooo!

    It really dosent count for much unless you have to call your DM about it. And recap what happened.

    Someday I got to meet you, except it's probably been close to 2 years since I've been to the Lancaster terminal.

    I see my DM daily, all three of them! They told me about it and had me watch it with them. They accepted my explanation as fact so really not a biggie. The truck being a smart drive is sometimes a good thing.

    Then your fine, my DM acted like mine was no big deal, one of the safety guys at SLC watched it and laughed. Seems like this is more a formality unless you do something really stupid.

    So now the question becomes "why is the government so interested in knowing what's going on in trucks?" What if a driver is a dissident who listens to obscure podcasts that aren't exactly pc? Is this part of a larger govt crackdown on non conforming opinions? It certainly appears that way.

    Have never heard anything about the government being interested or involved in truck drive cams. It's an insurance thing. Drive cams save companies insurance costs .

    They are subsidizing company costs for 90% according to Eckoh quote above. I'd call that being interested and involved if true.

    IF true. Not sure it is but if so, I'd sooner think it's a safety thing. Maybe trying to compare accident rates before and after drive cams are installed. I very seriously doubt they are interested in spying on some random individual truck driver to find out what he/she may be thinking or his/her opinion on world affairs. I'm not one for conspiracy theories.
