What Is A “Black Box?”
Almost everyone has heard of the black boxes that are in airplanes, however, most people don’t realize that trucks have black boxes as well.

- Data on the truck driver’s activity
In addition to the potential use of the black box to help with your Fort Worth trucking accident claim. There are some trucking companies within the industry that use GPS technology.

The trucking companies and their insurance companies aren’t out to help you as much as they’d like to say they are.
