Truckers Can Now Use Drivewyze Weigh Station Bypass at 20 Florida Sites
April 08, 2014
Drivewyze announced that Florida has become the 21st state to offer the Drivewyze PreClear bypass service. Drivewyze PreClear uses electronic on-board devices, including Electronic Logging Devices, tablets and smartphones, to provide commercial vehicles with inspection site bypass opportunities.
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.
Not only can Drivewyze help keep trucks moving, but it can also save operators time and money. An FMCSA study showed a single bypass made for several minutes can save $8.68 in lost time and fuel costs.
Drivewyze uses cellular networks and the internet to add transponder-like functionality to tablets, smartphones and select electronic on-board recorders. Unlike traditional methods that use dedicated short-range communication transponders in every truck, Drivewyze doesn’t require the installation of additional equipment.
With the addition of Florida, Drivewyze PreClear is now available at nearly 300 locations in 21 states.
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. It is also available on the new Zonar 2020 device. Rand McNally and Drivewyze recently announced an agreement to provide the Drivewyze “PreClear” weigh station bypass service for Rand McNally’s suite of mobile fleet management devices.
