Fleet FAQ? Fleet Management & Leasing

Q. How can windshield-mounted cameras and other devices meet the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation (FMCSR) section 5301 safety standard while not causing an obstruction?

May 17, 2017, by - Also by this author

A. Windshield mounted devices should never obstruct a driver's view. Based on the design of the vehicle and the device itself, exact placement will shift but generally should be done so in the far corners of the windshield or far below the rearview mirror in the lower quadrant of the windshield or on the dashboard. Driver safety should always be of the upmost concern. If you are unsure of the best placement you should consult with the manufacturer of the device being mounted or with a fleet safety specialist.
