Insight model 4SK606. Cost $149 each at the TA. The lenses are independently adjustable. Worth every penny. I had a truck back into my trailer in Tennessee and I was able to provide a dot number for the police report. I want to get signs on my doors that say "Smile! You're on camera". Maybe the 4wheelers would play nice when they see it.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Dash cams can work against you as well as help you. I personally will not put one in my truck. Ive been driving 7 years been in a head on accident and still proved it wasn't my fault.

I don't know what you're doing in your truck mang. You should do stuff where it doesn't work against you.

Same price on Amazon....Get one of these magnetic signs and put on trailer after you hook-up, it only7 bucks: Smile You're on Camera

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I have two. One fore each side of the truck. Two lenses per. One fisheye and one normal. I keep the fisheyes forward and the normal lenses on the dot mirrors. This allows me to record everything around my truck except directly behind the trailer.

Could you please upload a picture? I'm having trouble visualizing this, but it sounds like a great idea.

I haven't figured out how to upload pictures yet. Take a look at the camera on Amazon. I mounted one in each lower corner of the windscreen.

If you mean pictures for TT, use the Photo button in reply. First, though, you need to upload the pictures to a place like PhotoBucket. (Get the app! It's easier that way!) You make links from F-bucket to here.

Yeah, I figured it would require another account somewhere. I've been trying to minimize my web presence so I think I can live without posting pictures. Thank you for the help though!
