this is how it goes... if its a company truck yes, their truck. however they can not put a cam behind the sleeper curtin. they can not put a cam in a owner ops truck or a lease / contract truck.

Yes they can legally video record you in the truck. In fact, many companies are putting cameras in the truck now for liability issues with wrecks. Many times there is one mounted facing out the windshield and another pointed toward the driver seat, synced together. This way, in the event of an accident, video evidence can be used to protect the company and the driver. It also helps lower their ins premiums.

Our company doesn't require them, yet. However I purchased my own to c.m.a. in case of an accident. It has already paid for itself after a car cut me off. They did not realize I was recording and lied to the officer. Without the video proof, I could have been fined and possibly fired. Best investment made IMO!
