  Do you feel like Big Brother is watching you with the front-facing camera in your truck?  As a truck driver myself, I can understand where you’re coming from. You don’t want to feel like every move you’re making out on the road is being watched and scrutinized.  On the one hand, you might feel like the camera is an invasion of privacy.  On the other hand, you might realize that one day the camera could be helpful if you get into an accident. When you understand how the front-facing cameras work, you understand that they’re not put into place so your trucking company can watch every move you make; they’re put in place to help keep you safe and protect you from taking on liability for accidents you didn’t cause.
