    We were told today by management , that cameras are working on a " few " trucks in our hub , so " be careful what you do " Hidden cameras . I have not looked in my truck yet . We are a test hub , for almost everything , so we always see new things 1st . Why do they need cameras with 200 sensors and GPS , and live feed from space ? I am not talking about back up monitor , real " spy " cameras !!!!! I will never understand UPS , even after 25 years !

    Sue them for peeping on you when you pee in the back of the truck.

    The only time (usually) there are "hidden" cameras is when LP is investigating a suspected theft issue. Usually preload is the subject. These cameras are really not that hard to find if you know they are there.

    just always assume you are being spied on. If its not a camera its a sup peeking around the corner.

    Up high in the rear corners or on the bulkhead wall. Guilty conscience?

    When I worked preload there was a sup who had the nickname of "the weasel". He would climb up in the rafters to spy, climb in a boxline cage and ride around to watch people, and any other sneaky thing he could think of.

    Smile and work as directed. I always know about these. I'm usually requested to red tag a car for some bogus reason so they can install it. The last one made it a pain to install the telematics.

    If you are doing as you should the cameras should not be a big deal.

    Everyone everywhere should live by this with today's cell phone's and such.I always assume someone is recording everything at anytime.

    It's sad in a way that technology has taken away your free will. Now Big Brother is watching instead of God.

    The cameras have nothing to do with the packages----they want to make sure that we are doing what we are supposed to be doing while behind the wheel.

    Isn't that what telematics is used for?

    Yes but telematics cannot tell if we are on our cell phones, if there are packages in the cab, if we are being rude while driving or any other "in-cab distractions".
