Colorado to offer Drivewyze PreClear bypass service

Drivewyze and the Colorado State Patrol announced that Colorado has become the 19th state to offer the Drivewyze PreClear bypass service, which uses tablets, smartphones and select electronic on-board recorders to provide commercial vehicles with inspection site bypass opportunities.

“We’re pleased that the Colorado State Patrol recognizes the value in offering the trucking industry additional inspection site bypass options,” said Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze. “The addition of Colorado, which is on the heels of adding Kansas, is a significant part of our expansion of service westward across the U.S. With Colorado now on board, truckers traveling across the U.S. with Drivewyze PreClear will find more inspection site bypass opportunities along their routes.”

Drivewyze mobile-based bypass services are now available at 13 fixed locations in Colorado, including the southbound Monument Port of Entry near Exit 11 on U.S. Interstate 25 and the eastbound Loma Port of Entry near Exit 15 on U.S. Interstate 70. The service officially went live on Dec. 13.

“The addition of this mobile-based inspection site bypass service is another tool for us to improve highway safety,” said Kirstie Nixon, port of entry director for the Colorado State Patrol. “Drivewyze provides safety information to port of entry weigh stations two miles before the truck arrives, which, in most cases, allows the driver to clear the port without pulling into the port. It improves our ability to concentrate our efforts on vehicles that should be inspected, and helps to reduce congestion. It also helps us keep freight moving more quickly across Colorado, while still properly vetting trucks and carriers for safety. Drivewyze benefits both the trucking industry and the motoring public.

Drivewyze uses cellular networks and the Internet to add transponder-like functionality to tablets, smartphones and select electronic on-board recorders like those offered by PeopleNet, Zonar and XRS, without requiring installation of additional equipment.

Drivewyze is available from Google Play as an app for Android-based tablets or smartphones or from the Drivewyze website for iOS-based tablets or smartphones. A free trial period and in-app trial activation allows drivers and fleets new to the subscription service to take full advantage of bypass opportunities almost immediately. Following the trial period, the regular subscription fee is $15.75 per truck per month, and there is no annual commitment.
