    Only at your barn. Something to do with habitual nose picking.

    I think the initial knee jerk that drivers will have is seek representation. That alone is a huge deterrent from fxf actually rolling them out.

    I think IF they ever put cameras on the drivers it would be a big mistake on their part.

    Driver facing cameras are coming to Express, NOT Freight, and it’s allegedly due to the sharp increase of accidents and injuries that they’ve accumulated in the last several years...

    The last part, "just a matter of time", makes it impossible to predict/dispute with any accuracy. Too many variables, reaching out till the end of time. Your government could force the matter, changing everything.

    In today's world, I doubt the Company could afford the cost. Not talking about the cost of cameras, but rather the cost to enforce current policy at the current pay rate.

    Perhaps, but the scumbag owners at SAIA do it and they’ve weaponized it

    I am the all seeing , all knowing FedEx prognosticator. But seriously people, there’s no way they won’t eventually roll that out

    Easy fella. Once they got rid of the RAT, big relaxation. I was at least a video a day. I’ve had two since Thanksgiving. And “coached”, not disciplined (ever).

    No foul. Based on my experience with our drivecam, a guy’s gotta be asking for trouble to get trouble.

    I thought you got an exemption from the camera, being you have a hat cam, which records and transmits 24-7?

    Is it the tractor or the camera that makes him a pornstar?

    Everywhere but Stockton. At least that's what I was told at my last water buffalo meeting by the great gazoo.
