    Tuesday we were told at our barn that it is very possible that cameras in our trucks are coming. They are being tested in several cities right now and will most likely become fleet-wide soon. Some guys are not too happy about cameras but the company says it's a good thing. We'll see.

    There will be a forward facing camera, and one down both sides.

    This is a good thing, as it will not longer be the drivers word against the "suing" faction. It may keep a few people a bit more honest, instead of seeing a giant dollar sign on the trucks.

    Hopefully you guys don't get the driver facing cameras like we have(Conway.).

    No probably about it, if they are talking about it and testing them out you know the camera's are a reality. I bet they have the ones that scan the driver too!

    Actually, according to the test DC's and members of the road team, it is looking like front facing only. Road team member (involved in these decisions) assured no driver facing camera, and said there would be a lot of rumors saying there would be.

    Kinda hard to call it a rumor when they explained the inward facing camera at the meeting they had with drivers down in B'ntville, and also on the Qualcom audio msg last week! If they are talkin about it then IT is goin to happen. If you have been around here for any amount of time at all you should know this!

    If they think it's hard to get and keep drivers now, wait until the cameras get installed.

    The vast majority of people leaving Buckeye are retiring. They are in their late 60's and early 70's. I think they have earned their retirement.
