Drivewyze said its weigh station bypass service PreClear is now available at 20 locations in Florida.
Drivewyze PreClear uses electronic on-board devices, including electronic logging devices (ELDs), tablets and smartphones, to provide commercial vehicles with inspection site bypass opportunities.
“The Florida Dept. of Transportation joins agencies from 20 other states in recognizing the benefits of Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) transponder technology,” said Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze. “Since Florida is the fourth largest state in terms of population, and has so many deep-water seaports, its addition represents a big step forward in the expansion of Drivewyze PreClear service across the country.”
According to Heath, Drivewyze is operational at 20 fixed interstate locations in Florida, including the northbound and southbound Flagler weigh stations near mile marker 286 on I-95; the northbound and southbound White Springs weigh stations near mile marker 443 on I-75; and the eastbound and westbound Pensacola weigh stations near mile marker 3 on I-10.
A map with all of the active weigh stations in Florida and across the country is available on the Drivewyze web site: http://drivewyze.com/coverage-map/. The service officially went live on April 8.
“Nearly $500 billion worth of originating freight moves each year through the Sunshine State from aggregate mines, citrus groves and seaports to cement plants, warehouses and distribution centers across the state, around the region and throughout the country,” Heath said. “Drivewyze PreClear offers safe truck operators and fleets more bypass opportunities to keep that freight moving, and it provides vehicle enforcement officers a cost-effective tool to concentrate their efforts on those truck operators who require additional scrutiny.”
