For the first time, more than 100,000 fleets representing more than 700,000 trucks chose to support PrePass Safety Alliance, the nonprofit public/private partnership that provides PrePass weigh station bypass and other truck safety and efficiency services. These motor carriers earn the opportunity to participate in PrePass and bypass weigh stations by maintaining current credentials and qualifying safety scores, making highways safer for all motorists.
Across North America, trucks may bypass at over 450 PrePass sites.
Since the founding of the Alliance, motor carriers have enjoyed nearly one billion bypasses, saving 400 million gallons of fuel, 80 million driver hours, and $7.5 billion in operational costs, all while reducing emissions by 875,000 metric tons, according to PrePass.
Carriers choose PrePass as their weigh station preclearance service because it gives them options in bypass technology. The PrePass app, which includes driver safety ALERTS, works as a standalone application or in conjunction with the PrePass transponder for weigh station bypassing. Customers also receive access to INFORM Safety software to help assess safety performance and improve safety scores. INFORM supplies inspection, violation, and weigh station bypass data dashboards available only through PrePass.
