I highly doubt many people would get their jollies spying on drivers in their sleeper


I always laugh about that. Like, if you worked for a security agency, imagine getting stuck in the "truckers" division. Talk about punishment! Your job is to view truckers alone in their cab all day long.


If you're not hot, no one wants to watch you undress. Pretty basic principle.


Exactly. And the company isn't going to pay for the time for an employee to get their jollies anyway.

Well said

Although you are entitled to your opinions, you are not entitled to use our site to call people idiots for making career choices you don't agree with so I edited out that garbage. And considering that many of your "facts" are flat out wrong we'll go ahead and point the idiot finger back at you, and it's well deserved.

You don't have to work for a company with cameras in their trucks and you're free to share that opinion. But it would be nice if you would get your facts straight before you go slandering companies or spreading misinformation.

The cameras are not recording all the time. [Edit: They do record all the time. I'll explain in a follow-up comment]. They only record transmit when they are triggered by a certain event like hard braking, leaning too hard laterally, or a significant bump like those caused by a huge pothole or a collision.

And to say they don't value privacy is childish to be honest. You're driving their truck and they're financially responsible if you screw up. They have every right in the world to monitor what you're doing.

Again, you don't have to like it, but where do you get off calling people names for their career decisions or spreading misinformation? If you want to have an intelligent, fact-based conversation about this topic then let's have it. If you're going to get your facts wrong and criticize people then you're in the wrong place.
