For the first time, more than 100,000 fleets representing more than 700,000 trucks have chosen to support the PrePass Safety Alliance, the nonprofit public/private partnership that provides PrePass weigh station bypass and other safety services and truck efficiency. These motor carriers have the ability to participate in PrePass and Bypass weigh stations maintaining current credentials and qualifying safety scores, making highways safer for all motorists.
Across North America, trucks can bypass more than 450 PrePass locations.
Since the Alliance’s inception, motor carriers have benefited from nearly a billion bypasses, saving 400 million gallons of fuel, 80 million driving hours and $7.5 billion in operating costs, while reducing emissions by 875,000 metric tons, according to PrePass.
Carriers choose PrePass as their weigh station preclearance service because it gives them options for bypass technology. The PrePass app, which includes Driver Safety ALERTS, works as a standalone app or in conjunction with the PrePass transponder to bypass the weigh station. Customers also have access to INFORM Safety software to help them assess safety performance and improve safety scores. INFORM provides dashboards of Weigh Station Inspection, Violation, and Bypass data available only through PrePass.
