Drivewzye offering 60-day free trial of PreClear service

June 27, 2013

Drivewyze is offering the new version of its PreClear weigh station bypass and e-screening system for free for 60 days.

“PreClear 2.0 offers drivers and fleets the ability to download Drivewyze PreClear onto their Android-based smartphones and tablets and try it free for 60 days,” said Brian Mofford, Drivewyze vice president. “Drivewyze rewards drivers and fleets with solid safety scores with more opportunities to bypass weigh stations, giving them a competitive advantage over those that don’t.” 

The PreClear 2.0 app is available from Google Play for Android smartphones and tablets. Apple (iOS) and Blackberry smartphone and tablet users can sign up online at the Drivewyze website and still get access to a fully-supported PreClear 1.1.  

Drivewyze PreClear offers single-state plans starting at $7.99 per month, per truck and multi-state plans at $12.99 for every truck per month. Most fleets with high safety scores can enjoy bypass rates of up to 98% with PreClear, Mofford said.

 “An FMCSA study demonstrated that one weigh station stop made for even 5 minutes at a time can cost $8.68 in fuel and time lost,” Mofford added. “So, the ability to bypass inspections pays off handsomely.” 

The bypass service adds transponder-like functionality to tablets, smartphones and comes pre-loaded on select Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), including the Zonar 2020 mobile communications tablet, and connects to the Drivewyze service network via a single account regardless of where a driver travels. 

When a driver approaches within 2 miles of a Drivewyze-enabled weigh station or inspection site, the service alerts the driver while at the same time examines the bypass criteria established by each state enforcement agency including safety scores, registration and IFTA tax compliance. If the carrier and vehicle pass the criteria, the driver receives permission to bypass the inspection site. If there’s an issue, the driver is signaled to pull-in.

The Drivewyze PreClear service is currently available in 16 states, providing bypass opportunities at more than 220 weigh stations and mobile inspection sites, and is quickly growing across the United States.
