    High speed, no camera.

    Considering that the entire tanker industry is going the opposite direction, I'd say you might want to look into hauling cattle.

    Indian River keeps their trucks 3-4 years and they run 70 or 75 MPH. No cameras unless you install your own.

    My first truck when I started last year did 75mph, one I am in now does 70mph. Only camera in either truck is the one I bought myself and put in. Only cameras I have ever seen in other trucks were put in by those drivers.

    That's all I can be sure about.

    I have no idea; the few companies I'm aware of are here in Texas.

    LIVESTOCK NETWORK - Cattle Trucks - Cattle Loads would be a good place to start sniffing around.
     
    BlueThunderr Thanks this.

    So what your looking for is a company that is stuck in the 1980’s? The days of outlaw trucking are coming to a close fast, quick & in a hurry. Our fleet is governed at 75 and we’re now starting to install forward facing cameras. We really had no choice, either install them or find another insurance carrier and spend millions a year more.

    Supposedly Pilot/Thomas took out the driver facing cameras w/audio a couple years ago, took many embarrassing issues the company got hung on if displayed in court. As for speed, here in TX, they seem to be clipped at 68-70 mph.
