It's crazy that dash cams have gotten to this point. I do know we use DriverI in our trucks and I know some of the things the article is saying should trigger it but hasn't in my truck. So I'm wondering if they just have ours customized to not trigger off of every little thing. I have sat and spoken to our safety guys and from the conversation ours does give quite a bit of false positives. I was asking them how many times they get videos of drivers picking their noses(listen, I was strangely curious) and was told that more commonly they get false positive triggers of the camera thinking the driver is holding a phone to their ear, like picking their nose with their pinky and thumb at the ear, or talking on a headset and resting their head on their hand against the window.
I will say ours don't actually SAY anything. Mine just makes a ding noise when it alerts and I just wave at it. Ours also turn off if the engine is turned off and only triggers of the truck gets hit with a hard enough jolt of force.
I have seen some of the videos that were sent in and I will say, it is SUPER clear about what's going on around as a driver. It can tell how far away the vehicles are around and how far of a stopping distance you are from vehicles in front of you.

I taught upgrade classes to Amazon last mile drivers (all working for those contractors) through last fall. Drivers were upgrading to the new UPS sized delivery vans. They is no driver cam. So what's the "invasion of privacy" or "control tactic"?
