    I don't mind a camera recording what's going on in front of you (I have my own dash cam in case something goes on in front of me that could end up in court), but a camera constantly watching the driver? That's creepy. Do you think Crete's carpetbaggers would like a camera watching them at their desks? Hell no! When do they start implanting microchips like we do to our pets?

    And....with all of the jobs & related support/infrastructure, the states are granting tax exemptions, etc. Don't quote me, but I'm certain New Mexico & Texas just duked it out over an Intermodal rail yard project. there were two sites some miles apart on the N.M. & TX. border. N.M. put on the knee-pads & granted a fuel-tax exemption to BNSF. Stupid.....shoulda just lowered it so they would still have a revenue stream.

    As I understand it Crete only puts cameras in trucks where the driver is constantly screwing up or wrecking so if u dont wanr a camera dont screw up.

    Interesting.....fuel tax exemption on what driver ? Locomotive fuel? No sir, it's already tax exempt. He doesn't pay a penny of tax on that 5000 gallons he drags around in his belly tank......so what fuel? The pickups?

    Enlighten me please....

    Don't know about that deal down there. But the usual deal up here is no property or income tax. Or some such sweat heart deal......

    Enjoy the snow in TX !

    Some of the lot lizards I've seen waddling around the truck stops lately may trigger the drive cam just by climbing up on the step.
    It will tell Lincoln I'm trying to turn the truck over, while parked.

    I went to the Crete website and accessed the live webcam in the load planners room, that was rough. Looking at those big round eyeballs, the straight cut bangs and the snot on their faces. I almost ran off the road.

    From what I have been told by shop personnel they are done with cameras. Few trucks have them and no more are going to be used.
