North Carolina adds Drivewyze PreClear bypass station

Nov. 12, 2014

North Carolina has become the 30th state to install the Drivewyze PreClear bypass system for mobile-based weigh station bypass service.

Drivewyze PreClear users will be able to start receiving bypasses this month at three locations on U.S. Interstates 40 and 95 in the Tar Heel State, with more locations to be added soon. The three locations are:

  • Halifax weigh station – near the Virginia state line about 18 miles south of Roanoke Rapids, N.C., on I-95;
  • Lumberton weigh station – near the South Carolina state line about 10 miles north of Lumberton, N.C., on I-95;
  • Asheville weigh station – near the Tennessee state line about 12 miles west of Asheville, N.C., on I-40.

The Asheville site is live now, with the Halifax and Lumberton sites scheduled to become live in the next two weeks.

Drivewyze now offers mobile-based weigh station bypass at more than 400 locations in 30 states.

“We’re pleased that officials with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol’s Motor Carrier Enforcement Administration, as well as officials from Idaho, Michigan and Wisconsin, all recognize Drivewyze technology as an effective way to prescreen safe commercial operators,” said Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze. 

Drivewyze uses cellular technology and the internet to add transponder-like functionality to electronic logging devices, smartphones and tablets instead of costly dedicated short-range communication transponders and transponder readers, Heath said. 

A map with all of the currently active weigh stations in the South and across the country is available on the Drivewyze web site:
