The Georgia Department of Transportation, in partnership with HELP Inc, is installing PrePass, a technology system to reduce the frequency a cargo tractor trailer truck must stop to be weighed while traveling on Georgia's interstates.

“Our partnership with HELP Inc will enable Georgia to improve commercial vehicle enforcement, save motor carriers time, and improve highway safety,” said Georgia DOT Commissioner Harold Linnenkohl.

PrePass lets qualified motor carriers comply electronically with state weight, safety, and credential requirements while traveling at normal highway speeds rather than stopping at state truck inspection facilities. PrePassPLUS enables users to also pay E-ZPass system tolls electronically. Motor carrier participation is strictly voluntary, and carrier eligibility is subject to state safety qualifications.

Under the terms of the agreement with HELP Inc, PrePass will be available at most Georgia's weigh stations.
