PrePass Safety Alliance recently completed work extending the PrePass safety Alerts across all 48 contiguous states.
Nearly 2,800 Alerts now appear in the cab on the PrePass Motion weigh station bypass application, the company says.
Drivers receive PrePass Alerts as they approach known high-risk areas on the road helping them to stay alert and reduce speed when applicable. PrePass Safety Alliance works in collaboration with the trucking industry and enforcement agencies to select Alert locations that best reflect true areas of concern, PrePass says.
With audio and visual notifications, PrePass Alerts warns truck drivers of steep grades, gusty winds, no commercial roads, work zones, real time incidents, traffic congestion, truck parking availability, rest areas, and brake check chain-up areas.
PrePass Safety Alliance says it offers Alerts as a no-cost, added benefit of the PrePass Motion weigh station bypass app, available on Android and iOS powered devices and in-cab telematics systems.
“This expansion of the Alerts system flows directly from our mission to make America’s highways safer and more efficient,” said Mark Doughty, president and chief executive officer of PrePass Safety Alliance. “We have doubled the number of alerts in just the last month, giving drivers vital information to keep them safe and on time as they travel down the road.”
