PrePass has enhanced its PrePass Motion bypass app with the addition of PrePass Alerts which gives truck drivers roadway safety notifications and is an added no-cost benefit for PrePass customers.
With Alerts, drivers receive notifications when they are approaching areas with high winds, steep grades, traffic work zones and no commercial vehicle access roads. Alerts is available as part of the Motion app on both Android and iOS powered smart phones, tablets and selected in-cab telematics devices.
“This upgrade to PrePass Motion gives drivers very important safety information as they travel down the road to better prepare them for potentially adverse driving conditions,” Doughty said. “Thanks to the input of our DOT, enforcement and trucking industry partners, we quickly responded to a need for such alerts and are the only weigh station bypass service provider offering these safety enhancements.”
PrePass Motion can be used as a standalone app or in conjunction with the PrePass transponder for weigh station bypassing. The Motion weigh station bypass app is an enhancement that offers additional bypass sites and increased functionality, including Alerts.
“When traditional transponders and Motion are paired together, customers get the most complete and reliable bypass service available anywhere,” said Doughty. “Most importantly, PrePass Alerts provide information that can immediately and directly improve highway safety.”
