Drivewyze has announced that its PreClear weigh station bypass service is now available in the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador. These join Ontario and Alberta, which also have Drivewyze PreClear bypass service in their provinces.
The Newfoundland and Labrador service allows all Canadian plated subscribed trucks to have bypass opportunities at six locations, serving nine sites, throughout the province, including:
- Channel-Port aux Basques Hwy-1 NB
- Channel-Port aux Basques Hwy-1 SB
- Foxtrap Hwy-1 SB
- Goobies Hwy-1 NB
- Goobies Hwy-1 SB
- Grand Falls-Windsor Hwy-1 SB
- Pynn’s Brook Hwy-1 NB
- Pynn’s Brook Hwy-1 SB
- Labrador West Route 500 WB
Carriers are rewarded for their safety ratings with weigh station bypass privileges. A bypass means trucks over 4,500 kg (9,920 lbs.) do not have to enter weigh stations, saving trucking companies time and money by reducing delays and associated fuel costs when a truck pulls in and out of a station, Drivewyze notes.
According to Brian Mofford, Drivewyze’s vice president of government experience, the bypass sites represent the busiest areas for truck traffic, especially the Foxtrap location, which is just outside of St. John’s. “Highway 1 is the main thoroughfare across the Island, and most trucks take this route,” he said.
