PrePass Adds Safety Alerts to Bypass App

PrePass announced an enhancement to its weigh station-bypass app that gives truck drivers roadway safety notifications at no extra cost to PrePass users.


With the new Alerts feature, drivers receive notifications when they are approaching areas with high winds, steep grades, traffic work zones and no commercial vehicle access roads. The enhancement is available as part of the PrePass Motion app that works on Android and iOS smartphones, tablets and selected in-cab telematics devices, according to Phoenix-based Help Inc., which provides PrePass services.

“Thanks to the input of our state department of transportation, 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,” Help Inc. President Mark Doughty said. — Transport Topics
