How drivers, legal experts and insurers feel about driver-facing cameras

Ccj Logo White Headshot

It’s no secret in trucking that most drivers aren’t big fans of driver-facing cameras in their cab. The argument many drivers give, and perhaps with good reason, is that the truck is their home and they feel like their privacy is being invaded by having cameras turned toward them.

New research released last month by the American Transportation Research Institute dove into the issue of driver-facing cameras and how they are perceived not only by drivers, but also by legal experts and insurers.

Joining Jason and Matt on the 10-44 this week is ATRI Research Associate Alex Leslie, who talks about the report's findings and ways fleets can approach drivers about the cameras.
