Hirschbach Motor Lines (No. 105 on the CCJ Top 250) has decided to incorporate the Lytx DriveCam in-cab video system into its fleet.

The company says it tested different video systems over the last year and a half before deciding on Lytx.

“Lytx is much more than just a video telematics company,” says Brian Kohlwes, chief general counsel and vice president of safety at Hirschbach. “They are a true partner in helping Hirschbach reduce accidents.”

The DriveCam system mounts on the center of the windshield of the truck and captures short bursts of video clips when there are safety events such as hard braking, a sudden stop, roll stability and more, Lytx says. The driver can also manually activate the system by pressing a button on the camera.

“The technology will help Hirschbach in becoming a best-in-class carrier in safety,” Kohlwes adds. “Also, in the event of an accident that was not our driver’s fault, the DriveCam video can help exonerate our drivers and us. We will be right with the safest carriers in the country by utilizing this technology. This technology will ultimately help us save lives.”
