PrePass Safety Alliance recently upgraded the PrePass safety alerts system to include critical traffic warnings across all 48 contiguous states. Motor carriers and commercial vehicle compliance agencies now benefit from thousands of alerts that appear in-cab on the PrePass app.
Drivers receive PrePass alerts as they approach known high-risk areas on the road helping them to stay alert and reduce speed when applicable. PrePass works in collaboration with the trucking industry and enforcement agencies to select alerts locations that best reflect true areas of concern.
With rich audio and visual notifications, PrePass alerts now offer up to the minute in-cab safety notification of work zones, traffic incidents and crashes, dangerous slowdowns, and traffic congestion. These alerts are in addition to the original warnings for truck parking, steep grades, gusty winds, no commercial truck roads, rest areas, and brake check chain-up areas.
PrePass offers alerts as an added benefit of the PrePass weigh station bypass app, available on Android and iOS powered devices and in-cab telematics systems. To gain access to these new features, download or update the PrePass app on your device.
“Our state and industry partners have told us that work zones and dangerous slowdowns represent two critical highway safety areas in need of improvement,” said Jarrod Del Prado, VP of operations for PrePass. “This expansion of the PrePass alerts system takes an important step in addressing those concerns and flows directly from our mission to make America’s highways safer and more efficient. When you consider the additional dynamic traffic safety notifications included in this upgrade, we believe the alerts program will lead to fewer crashes and safer roads for everyone.”
