Connected truck services provider Drivewyze Inc. announced it is now providing real-time weather warnings as part of its Drivewyze Safety+ proactive driver notification platform on ELDs.

“The latest Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration data showed that weather was a factor in 20% of truck crashes that resulted in death and 12% that resulted in injuries. It also created 13% of property damage,” said Brian Heath, CEO of Drivewyze.

Drivewyze integrated its technology with other partners’ weather data to pinpoint extreme or severe weather occurrences in the United States, giving drivers time to slow down, alter routes or pull over in severe weather cases, according to the Dallas-based company. Severe weather alerts start at up to 50 miles from the severe weather occurrence.

Alerts are only delivered when and where drivers need them and are discontinued when the weather threat passes. Safety+ is an always-on service and does not require third-party navigation services to be running on supported ELDs. — Transport Topics
