    Video recording of drivers OK’d by CA attorney general

    Carriers contracting companies that provide in-cab filming of drivers may use this data for disciplinary purposes, California’s attorney general has concluded.

    Companies record with front-facing and/or driver-facing video cameras in a continuous loop until a trigger event, such as a driver braking hard or swerving. State code allows the recorder to “store no more than 30 seconds before and after a triggering event.” If the video is used for training or disciplinary purposes, the recording is available to the driver or the driver’s bargaining representative.

    Last spring, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration granted a two-year extension of an exemption allowing these recorders to be attached to truck windshields. In 2012, California lawmakers amended state code to allow attachments to windshields or rear mirrors. The exemption allows a “video event recorder with the capability of monitoring driver performance to improve driver safety.”

    Report from Overdrive

    DVR/Dash Cameras for Trucks offer basic ’forward view’ recording; driver + forward recording; and multi-camera recording solutions. With this, truck drivers are able to stay safe and limit risks by recording all aspects of the vehicle.

    What would be the difference. There are enough of them making those youtube videos all the time. This way they can use the companys camera and save themselves some money. just share the videos with the company. A great idea.

    As it is that would possibly be better videos if someone, the company, is editing the film. Tired of all those self serving I am a trucker video.
