Forward facing cameras can also catch in truck illegalities too. A driver at Knight was fired for being on his phone when his actions or lack of action triggered his forward facing camera.

How can this be possible you might ask? Well turns out it was at night & the backlight of his cell phone was reflecting off of the windshield, while he was holding it in his hand, as he was driving down the road.

So not only did he get a critical event but then he lost his job because of the reason for his critical event. There was another scenario that was caught the same way but I can't remember the details.

If you have met all the requirements for hire by a company you should not have to be watched by anyone.




Are you staying out of all public buildings and avoiding all city streets? Because every building you walk into has security cameras monitoring every move you make and everything you say. All major intersections and sidewalks have cameras on you at all times. You're also walking around with a phone in your pocket while the government monitors everywhere you go, everything you say, everything you buy, and who you come in close contact with. Not only do they see and hear everything live, but they store all this information permanently for future use.

I always find it odd that people get upset about being on camera while driving a big rig, probably the best use of a camera ever, and yet they'll freely spend the entire rest of their lives being monitored by cameras covering every inch of our society. They'll also walk around with a camera, microphone, GPS chip, and accelerometer in their pocket, knowing that the NSA monitors them continuously, but somehow they sleep well at night.





Strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. In other words, worry about the most trivial things while ignoring much more serious and concerning issues.


What's your experience been with them Kerry?

I am not yet a driver, so no experience. But, every warehouse at which I have worked has cameras. If the truck is not my truck that I am either paying for or already paid for, then it's the property of the company for which I work (speaking hypothetically), so I expect that my conduct on company property is subject to monitoring. I think it's a non-issue where some people want to complain just to complain.
