Waste Management and Recycling: Road and Driver-Facing

SmartWitness cameras for managing streets and sanitation fleets protect your department, drivers and vehicles with video evidence to monitor driving behaviors, confirm service and record exactly what happened in an incident.


Combining events with behaviors.
Pairing SmartWitness road-facing and driver-facing waste management cameras provide valuable evidence of what actually occurred and how the driver reacted in the time around an event.

Video is particularly important in litigation, where road/driver footage can be the difference between exoneration and a huge judgement.

A driver-facing camera also is a great tool to support driver safety programs, focusing on potentially risky behaviors that can contribute to increased vehicle insurance premiums, litigation costs or repair/maintenance expenses.

SmartWitness AI technology dramatically reduces false positives that don’t require your attention such as harsh braking when traveling downhill or accelerating while merging.

SmartWitness video telematics systems and technology are designed to be modular to fit each customer’s precise needs. Choose the solutions that are right for you:

  • Adds well-rounded context, shedding light on road events and driving behaviors simultaneously
  • Ensures stops are being made as planned, with video plus GPS/routing
  • Reduces vehicle wear and tear by encouraging smoother driving
  • Provides an overview of driver habits/problematic behaviors for individual coaching
  • Can mitigate personal injury claims and exorbitant litigation costs
  • Enables quick fault determination, faster claims resolution and exoneration of driver/fleet owner from false claims
  • Can positively impact insurance premiums
  • Hauling/utility vehicles
  • Passenger vehicle owners/drivers
  • Mobile workforce/sales personnel
  • Independent owner/operators
  • Fleets
  • Long-haul trucking
  • Transportation and monitoring of hazardous materials

Consider upgrading or adding additional cameras when:

  • Increased vehicle blind-spot visibility (side/rear views) is required
  • Better visibility of loading/unloading is needed
  • Visibility of hazardous materials/cargo must be maintained at all times (in-truck/back views)
  • A top-loader view with in-cab visibility would be beneficial to see when/where prohibited materials are placed into the loader (paint, tires, etc.), allowing appropriate action (cleanup, disposal or logging fines)
  • You require expanded accident reconstruction evidence (side-swipes, turns, blind-spot incidents, rear-of-vehicle incidents)
  • You need to show video proof of services rendered/deliveries made
