Knight Transportation does not.

Knight does have cameras in the truck. We have had cameras for the dry van Kansas yard for 1 year now as a test run. Now they are putting them in terminal by terminal when you go for B service.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Knight's cameras are forward facing only.

Hey Jack, welcome to the forum! I just realized that was your first post - it's nice to have another driver from Knight in here.

I drive in the SAPA dedicated flat-bed division out of the Gulfport MS terminal. I also have a camera in my truck, but it's forward facing only. This topic was for driver facing cameras.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

SAP:

Substance Abuse Professional

The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare.

You can add Ryder logistics to the list of driver facing camera's as of six months ago I never thought it would come to this in nineteen years of trucking, it's sad that a company feels it needs to watch our every move. I think we should boycott any company with driver facing camera's. It looks like it's time to either get my own truck or let the "dreamer's" have these sweat shop on wheels job's.

Wow, there's already more companies than I thought there would be. Thanks so much guys and keep em comin! We'll keep this thread up so people can add to it as time goes on.

My job feeds my family, keeps my belly full, pays my bills and puts some extra cash in my wallet (at least when the wife doesnt take it!). And I am to quit my job in protest of driver-facing cameras because some dude on the internet is severely opposed to driver facing cameras?

Daniel,

Your hard work feeds your family and pays your bills. Rest assured, your hard work is also pulling a lot of nearly dead weight upper management along too.

Presumably Douglas intends for himself and others to find a company with a little more respect towards their drivers.

I agree, you didn't hear it from me but most of upper management seems to be dead weight at my company. Its either bad decisions made or awful decisions made.

However! They're in their 50's, I'm in my mid-20's. I am going to outlive them and then their job will be mine!

.... so your career goal is to be company dead weight?

Pretty much, eventually they'll be forced to promote me right?

I bring a whole new meaning to "Time is on my side!"

Douglas, welcome to the forum!

I'm making a huge presumption when I'm hoping you are not one of those first time posters who has an axe to grind and then never shows back up to back up his statements, but I am curious, if you don't mind...

You have been nineteen years in the business, so you know that not a whole lot has changed in this business. I assume that you have had a decent ride, and enjoyed your career for you to have stayed for nineteen years. Surely you would have changed careers by now if you really considered these were "sweat shops on wheels jobs."

Do you really think that someone is watching your every move? Do they have that kind of time to waste?

There is no avoiding technological advances in any industry, they are a vital part of a growing economy. Just by getting your own truck will not eliminate the use of technology, just consider the ELD mandate barreling down on us even now.

We are not suggesting that you bow down to any one, but we don't understand your willingness to start labeling a career that you have presumably enjoyed and profited from for nineteen years, a "sweat shop on wheels." Then on top of that you are willing to throw all your fellow drivers under the bus and label them as "dreamers."

Really?
