Prepass Grows ALERTS™ To Nearly 2,800 Roadway Safety Notifications In 48 States
PHOENIX, AZ… PrePass Safety Alliance recently completed work extending the PrePass safety ALERTS™ across all 48 contiguous states. Motor carriers and commercial vehicle compliance agencies now benefit from nearly 2,800 ALERTS that appear in-cab on the PrePass MOTIONweigh station bypass application.
Drivers receive PrePass ALERTS as they approach known high-risk areas on the road helping them to stay alert and reduce speed when applicable. PrePass Safety Alliance works in collaboration with the trucking industry and enforcement agencies to select ALERT locations that best reflect true areas of concern.
With rich audio and visual notifications, PrePass ALERTS warns truck drivers of Steep Grades, Gusty Winds, No Commercial Roads, Work Zones, Real Time Incidents, Traffic Congestion, Truck Parking Availability, Rest Areas, and Brake Check Chain-Up Areas.
PrePass Safety Alliance offers ALERTS as a no-cost, added benefit of the PrePass MOTION weigh station bypass app, available on Android and iOS powered devices and in-cab telematics systems.
“This expansion of the ALERTS system flows directly from our mission to make America’s highways safer and more efficient,” said Mark Doughty, President and CEO of PrePass Safety Alliance. “We have doubled the number of alerts in just the last month, giving drivers vital information to keep them safe and on time as they travel down the road.”
Pass Safety Alliance is the only weigh station preclearance provider that offers multiple bypass technology choices. PrePass MOTION, which includes ALERTS, works as a standalone app or in conjunction with the PrePass transponder for weigh station bypassing, making PrePass the most complete and reliable bypass service available.
“When traditional transponders and PrePass MOTION are paired together, customers get the best of both worlds,” said Doughty. “Most importantly, PrePass ALERTS provides information that can immediately and directly improve highway safety and efficiency.”
PrePass Safety Alliance provides PrePass®, the leading truck safety bypass and data platform in North America. PrePass allows states to preclear qualified commercial motor carriers to bypass inspection facilities at highway speeds and provides driver safety ALERTS™, electronic toll payment services and INFORM™ Safety and Tolling software.
