My company does not, only company I heard of so far was I believe xpo, and supposedly it only activates after sudden movements like hard braking etc but could be wrong.

More companies are going to driver-facing cameras but it's been slow to catch on because so many driver don't like them. Here's our most recent information:

Trucking Companies That Use Driver-Facing Cameras

There was 1 of the megas, prime i believe (correct me if im wrong) that no longer utilizes driver facing. The company still utilizes forward facing though. I work for a company that has forward and driver facing. At times it gets irritating but overall im glad to have it. Ive only been "coached " a couple times due to unsafe acts/driving which was mainly the first month or two. The last time i received a call was because i wasnt wearing a seatbelt. In that situation i was moving the truck roughly 50 yards to the fuel island to scrub my windows. I didnt have a trailer and hard braked as i underestimated how much pressure i needed. I got coached about not wearing my seatbelt despite moving so slow but thats company policy. I was in the wrong and own my mistake. For a while i was tripping the camera nearly daily due to the condition of the roads (potholes, bumps) but nothing was ever said to me as i was practicing safe driving habits. The cameras are always recording on a 10(?) Second loop and overwriting itself. I am glad to have it in my truck as ive had several close calls this first year and for most of them it would have proved my innocence. It also makes me be sure im driving in a safe, professional manner because i really hate getting a call about my driving....

Errol and G Town will chime in but that was Swift. Prime doesnt have forward nor inward cameras. we have a lane assist camera, that it is.

on the ladies forum, a woman stated a couple years ago that Roehl was sexist and put cameras in only womens trucks. However another member commented that the cameras were placed with drivers who were considered high risk through speeding and critical events. when the truck switched drivers the cameras were.not removed. thats far from sexist.

Swift also falls into the category of previously installed in-cab and forward facing. Only forward, road facing now.

CFI tested them and scrapped them because the cost wasn't justified.

This is funny because our eld tablets in our trucks have the forward camera. Like most tablets do. Well all of the senior drivers have put electrical tape over the cameras in their assigned trucks because they think the company is spying on them. It's like dude if they were really using the camera they would've immediately told you to remove the tape.

Our PeopleNet has cameras front and back because they are Android tablets. CFI has not paid to activate them. It would be nice to be able to take pics of truck and trailer issues to send to road service or safety.
