Drivers can be both an asset and a weakness. And they can also be a liability.

Many trucking companies have dashcams that also monitor the driver. With the number of their trucks on the highway there IS going to be accidents with some of their trucks. And the company wants to ensure the driver was not distracted at the time of the accident. It could mean the difference between a large settlement are the other driver being found in the wrong.

This in no way condones unreasonable workloads on the driver. But there are valid reasons for the cameras.

Yes, usage is a problem. With most companies it's kept in house for use in case of incidents.

Just mentioning that there is a viable reason for them. Any company can misuse any technology.
