South Carolina has become the 28th state to install PrePass, deploying the on-highway, safety technology at Anderson Northbound on Interstate 85.

PrePass technology enables qualified motor carriers to comply electronically with state weight, safety, and credential requirements at highway speeds. Motor carrier participation is strictly voluntary, and carrier eligibility is subject to state safety qualifications. By enabling enforcement personnel to concentrate on those trucks most likely to be non-compliant, and by reducing lane-changing and congestion around weigh stations, PrePass can make highways safer for all motorists.

Since its inception in 1995, PrePass has saved carriers nearly $1.3 billion in operational costs. Based on Environmental Protection Agency engine idle reduction estimates, PrePass has reduced emissions by more than 215 million kg.

Launched in California in 1995, PrePass is now operational at 280 sites in 28 states including: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
