    Has anyone talked to the union about this? I know it probably wont get anything done but paper trail is a start. As far as I know they aren't supposed to have cameras in our trucks without that being in the contract.

    It's not a camera. It is the front facing lane departure warning system sensor. It sits right in the middle of the windshield near the top. It measures the lines on the road.

    It's a lane detection system to make sure you don't hit the car in front of you. It is not a camera. I now understand your confusion.

    When the newer automatic Volvos first came out with all those detection gadgets, drivers were telling each other they were cameras then too...

    But I would like to know...Has ANYONE figured how to shut those damn lane alerts off? They really are distracting...I know I hit that button more than 50 times on a trip...You don't even have to cross the line, just ride near it or cross over old ones from construction and it blurps. The AM/FM radios in the freightshakers are garbage...your listening to static and blurting lane alerts all night. You have to get yourself a XM or Iheart to drive those if your a RDDR.

    I wish I could find out how to turn those darn alarms at least down, it's frustrating. One of our trucks is really touchie, the rest aren't as bad, I don't know what the difference is but...Being a city driver I don't really have time to listen to the radio much, in and out alot.
