PrePass has added new truck driver safety alerts for mountainous areas along Interstate 70 in Colorado.
PrePass Alerts are a feature of the Motion weigh station bypass mobile application. The alerts notify truck drivers of steep grades ahead from a distance of approximately five miles away, and also notify them as they approach any of five runaway truck ramps along the route. Drivers will also receive alerts for seven sites along I-70 where they can perform brake checks and/or during winter, complete truck tire chain-ups or removals.
PrePass Safety Alliance developed the Colorado-specific alerts in collaboration with the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Colorado State Patrol and the Colorado Motor Carriers Association.
In the near future, the PrePass Safety Alliance plans to expand the Colorado-type alerts to other states with similar terrain.
