Trucking Companies That Use Driver-Facing Cameras

Last Updated: Aug 24, 2016

What New Drivers Need To Know About Trucking Companies With Driver-Facing Cameras

Many trucking companies have installed, or are going to install, in-cab cameras that face both the road and the driver.

Typically the cameras are constantly recording in a loop, recording over previous footage until an "incident" occurs, like hard braking or bumping or crashing into something. At that point the 10 seconds, or so, both before and after the incident are saved, the monitoring company will review it and alert your company if necessary, and they will review the footage. They do not otherwise permanently store or continuously monitor recorded footage. There isn't enough bandwidth or storage space on Earth to make that feasible.

More recently, dash cameras were introduced that will trigger in-cab alerts and prompts for incidents such as drifting out of your lane or improper following distances, that could indicate distracted or drowsy driving. These type of incidents could also trigger a safety review with your company.

Trucking companies are depending on the cameras to help reduce their liability in case of a disputed crash, and improve overall safety in regards to things like driver distractions.

Less Than Truckload

Refers to carriers that make a lot of smaller pickups and deliveries for multiple customers as opposed to hauling one big load of freight for one customer. This type of hauling is normally done by companies with terminals scattered throughout the country where freight is sorted before being moved on to its destination.

LTL carriers include:

  • FedEx Freight
  • Con-way
  • YRC Freight
  • UPS
  • Old Dominion
  • Estes
  • Yellow-Roadway
  • ABF Freight
  • R+L Carrier


Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).
