Indiana is the first state for which Drivewyze has added parking spot availability into the COVID-19 response rest area alerts initiative. The initiative has resulted in parking area open/close notifications for drivers in Pennsylvania, Florida, Arizona, Virginia and Ohio.

The company says the in-cab notification alerts are strategically placed. Most alerts are 25 miles out, then updated again at 5 miles out.

“Some sites use customized distances to avoid duplication with state electronic signboards, that display parking information, or to add informational value by optimizing the time drivers can consider alternate parking areas when lots are full,” said Brian Heath, chief executive officer of Drivewyze.

Drivewyze’s temporary rest area notifications will continue for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, the company says.
