PrePass Safety Alliance has upgraded its safety Alerts system to include critical traffic warnings across the lower 48 states. As a result, the company said thousands of notifications will appear in-cab on the PrePass app.
Drivers receive PrePass Alerts as they approach known high-risk areas, helping them to stay alert and reduce speed when applicable. PrePass said it works with the trucking industry and enforcement agencies to select Alert locations that “best reflect true areas of concern.”
With rich audio and visual notifications, the Alerts system now offers up to the minute in-cab safety notification of work zones, traffic incidents and crashes, dangerous slowdowns, and traffic congestion. These Alerts are in addition to the original warnings for such issues as truck parking, step grades, gusty winds, no commercial truck routes, rest areas, and chain-up areas.
PrePass offers the Alerts system as an added benefit of its weigh station bypass app, available on Android and iOS powered devices and in-cab telematics systems. Access to these new features is gained by downloading or updating the PrePass app on a device.
