As for cameras etc, that would require the operating companies to care about other road users. Given how many companies have been caught tampering with speed limiters recently, and how many trucks I see speeding on the freeways in Melbourne, I'm not convinced many truckers care about other road users at all.
Cos if you want to carry 30 tonnes at a time its how you do it. And generally the drivers seem to smack into less stuff than the average driver in the average car.
Personally I am damn sure that the vast majority of car drivers have no clue about the difficulties of trucks. As indeed you seem to be confirming.
