Some other knight drivers, please confirm this, but if I'm not mistaken, knight has recently disabled audio on the cameras. So, now, it's forward facing video only.

That's correct Sambo. They determined the data from audio was of little consequence in helping them recognize and assist high risk drivers.

Fedex Ground will soon require forward AND driver facing cameras in all trucks operated by them and has offered incentives to their contractors (my employer included) to install and utilize them early. While Fedex Ground does not yet require them at this time, they will by years end and many contractors have already installed them.

CRST now has the Lytx DriveCams. They are outward facing only. I am glad CRST has these because it will help drivers become safer. This pic explains how it works now. We have had these cams since I became a lead driver. All new trucks have them and we are retrofittin the entire fleet with them now.

Hello. You can add Grand Island Express to the list that has cameras. They have forward, left, right and driver facing cameras. As of yet, not every truck has the driver facing cameras turned on, mine is not. But the shop says they will all be turned on soon. The new drivers have the cameras turned on, but drivers that have been here for a while, it is optional. They pay you $.02 cpm each month to have the driver facing camera on.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Quality Carriers and the associates under Quality Distribution are installing Lytx system in all trucks. The inward camera and audio are to be disabled per company policy. Drivers are being told they can cover the inward camera if they choose.

I’m not sure why a company lays out the cash to buy a system they only intend to use half of. Maybe got a good price.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

CFI has inward and outward cameras.

These are auto triggered by critical events: following too close, erratic lane change with no turn signal, hard brake, cornering too fast, and the elusive false "low bridge" phantom readings.

A driver can push a button to manually activate the recorder.

Neither camera has audio.

I installed a piece of electrical tape over the inward facing camera lense on the day I accepted the truck and have heard nothing from the higher ups.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated

Might want to reconsider that, at Conway nobody said anything until someone reviewed a event. Then the driver was given 1 warning a 2nd time was immediate termination.
