In the United States of America there is a severe shortage of truck drivers and it is only getting worse. In fact many trucking companies are placing ads on daytime TV to get housewives to come and sign-up as employees for truck drivers. Also many truck companies are trying to recruit people fresh out of prison, teach them had a drive a truck and put them on the road within two to three weeks.

Although trucking accidents are actually down in the United States of America as a percentage of the millions of miles traveled, they are still too high for many concerned citizens who are worried about auto safety. When a car hits a truck is pretty obvious, which one will win and this is why accidents with trucks and four wheelers are not pretty.

By putting more and more drivers on the road many trucking companies are concerned with increased accidents and since they are trying to increase the training, while actually cut down the time of the training at the same time things are very difficult. Currently many trucking companies use virtual reality truck simulators to help with the training.

However, these truck simulators need more roads so that the truck driver trainee can actually go all the way across the country and be put into many different situations and many different roads.

It makes sense to drive a truck with a camera on it and to film the road in front of the truck on all types of roads. The camera should be set where the driver sits and then this footage can be taken back to the film editing room to be digitized and used in the truck virtual reality simulators. Perhaps you might consider this in 2006.
