The state of New York is the latest state to add the Drivewyze PreClear inspection bypass service to its highways. Nine locations along Interstates 81 and 88 near Syracuse and Binghamton, and Interstate 87 near Albany and Saratoga Springs, are offering the service. More locations will be added, Drivewyze said.
The mobile-based weigh station and inspection site bypass service is now available at 478 locations in 33 states. A map with all of the currently active weigh stations and inspection sites in New York and across the country is available on the Drivewyze web site: http://drivewyze.com/coverage-map/.
“We’re pleased that officials with the New York State Dept. of Transportation recognize Drivewyze technology as an effective way to prescreen safe commercial operators,” said Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze. “By offering truck and fleet operators the opportunity to earn bypasses through the strength of their safety records, New York state officials can reduce congestion in and around weigh stations, allowing freight to move more quickly."
Drivewyze uses cellular technology and the internet to add transponder-like functionality to electronic logging devices, smartphones and tablets instead of dedicated short-range communication transponders and transponder readers, Heath said.
Drivewyze PreClear 3.0, the newest version of the weigh station application, comes with Weigh Station Heads-Up service for real-time notifications for more than 700 weigh stations and inspection sites nationwide. While the notification service is free, the bypass service is subscription-based and starts at $15.75 per vehicle per month with free trial offers and volume discounts available. The Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application can be used on Android and iOS-based tablets or smartphones, and is integrated into PeopleNet Blu.2 and Tablet devices, the Zonar 2020 mobile communications tablet, and the Rand McNally TND 760 fleet management device.
