Drivewyze is announcing a free nationwide weigh station and inspection site alert service available without subscription to all truck drivers with the launch of PreClear 3.0, the newest version of its weigh station app.
“By downloading this free app from the Google Play store onto their Android smartphones or tablets, drivers will receive advance notice of upcoming weigh stations and inspection sites, so they have time to prepare,” said Brian Mofford, vice president of Drivewyze. “Users will get an audio and visual alert two miles and one mile before the weigh station. They will know when they need to be in the correct lane and to slow down to pull in to the station or inspection site, if necessary.”
Users can download the free app and use it immediately without any obligation or time limits. Plus, they don’t have to create accounts to access the free weigh station alert service.
At any time, users can click a button in the app and start an optional 30-day free trial of the subscription-based Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service. With the bypass service, drivers receive not only a free heads-up notification, but also the opportunity to request and receive bypass privileges at 252 weigh stations and inspection sites across 19 states. Bypass rates range from 50% to 98%t based on a carrier’s credentials and safety record.
The new version of PreClear 3.0 also features improved functionalities to enhance the ease and simplicity of its interface, Mofford said. Drivewyze is a hands-free service that is safe and compliant with all federal and state driving laws.
The initial release of the nationwide Weigh Station Heads Up service is available only for Android users. The PreClear bypass service remains available for both iOS and Android devices.
