Submitted by jrlaw on Nov 14th, 2013

With the amount of damage an 18-wheeler can impose in an accident, why are trucking companies still hesitant to spend $100 on a dash camera?

Commercial trucks (e.g. 18-wheelers, big rigs, tankers, semi trailers, tractor trailers, etc) carry the world's goods from place to place, crossing from state to state and often even crossing continents. Doesn't sound like much but if 18-wheelers stopped doing their job it would affect many companies, industries, and even interfere with you buying the things you need and enjoy.
