With Florida joining Pennsylvania in suspending parking at select rest areas due to Coronavirus, Drivewyze is providing “open and closed” alerts for Florida’s 65 rest areas and welcome centers.
The Florida alerts have already been activated, joining the Pennsylvania rest area alerts that went live on March 24. Drivewyze safety notification alerts are available and free to carriers subscribed to the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service.
The rest area notifications will be displayed for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency, so long as rest area parking is limited. As in Pennsylvania, notifications in Florida will be sent at strategic locations along the route: around 25 miles out, then again at roughly 5 miles out.
Both the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application, and the Drivewyze Safety Notifications service, are available to carriers on supported ELDs and other in-cab devices, through the Drivewyze partner network.
