Cameras are being put inside trucks, facing the driver. So the drivers are being recorded as they change, as they drive, as they sleep, etc... Female and male drivers change in the trucks, they change their underwear in the trucks. This is a total invasion of privacy.

If a driver refuses a camera in their truck, the employer has a right to fire them, so in other words it's have no privacy, or have no job. The notice that drivers received on their log books stated they can not cover or tamper the camera or they will be terminated, not even for the reassurance that you wont be watched when changing clothes. While the notice does state it only records seconds before and after an accident, or any indication an accident may occur such as abrupt braking or lane departure, there is no light on the camera indicating that it is or isn't recording. The camera has one red flashing light that flashes all hours of the day.

Sysco in Quebec was court ordered to remove their cameras in all trucks after a five year battle, being told there are other ways to ensure safety in their fleet that is less intrusive, however this court order only applied to that company. 

 Sysco drivers claimed the camera recorded at random times, which leads me to believe that it is happening in other companies, such as the one my parents are working for.

The first thing that happens when a truck driver gets in an accident, is the truck driver is blamed. However, cameras facing outside the windshield will show who's fault it is. A dash camera facing outside can be equally as effective as a driver facing camera, but less invasive, and more respectful to the drivers that provide what we buy in stores, like food and clothes and products.

Drivers do a lot for us that we don't realize like long hauls away from their family for days, risking themselves as essential workers go to different countries, provinces, and states to provide for people beyond us. They at least deserve the respect of privacy.
