Researchers want to know how truckers feel about driver-facing cameras


On Monday, the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) debuted a survey for truckers dealing with the topic of driver-facing cameras.

The ATRI says that the survey is designed to help researchers better understand truck driver perspectives on driver-facing cameras (DFCs).

“Previous FMCSA-sponsored research conducted by ATRI documented that truck drivers have very positive opinions about road-facing cameras, but numerous driver concerns were raised about driver-facing cameras. ATRI’s DFC survey is designed to better understand the specific issues and concerns truck drivers have, and to determine what, if any, strategies might address those concerns,” the ATRI said.

The ATRI will also research how DFCs could be used by defense attorneys to “to reduce unfavorable litigation outcomes against truck drivers and motor carriers.”
