  • Novel idea. Yet seems like it will be extremely distracting and dangerous. People following will tailgate to get a better look and that only causes more problems.

  • Isn't this inviting impatient drivers to drive even closer to the big trucks? 
    In the opening example, the oncoming car with its headlights on wasn't visible on the screens but was already visible by our cameraman.  The truck driver cannot see cars following so close.  And the cutting back in distance was what, 5 feet?
    I see great things for this kind of tech but not to solve this particular issue.  
    Fix the drivers:  If you cannot drop back far enough to see around the vehicle you want to pass then be patient – it is not yet safe to pass.

  • This is sick but a lot of truck companies won't do it because it's just an added expense…
