How does PrePass Safety Alliance determine whether a carrier’s vehicles are qualified to bypass?

The private and public representatives who comprise the Alliance Board of Directors utilize the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Inspection Selection System (ISS) thresholds to set basic criteria to determine if a carrier’s vehicles qualify to bypass weigh stations and ports of entry. PrePass Safety Alliance utilizes data from SAFER (carrier records maintained by FMCSA), the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (Nlets), and other government sources to electronically screen carriers and establish that their safety record and credential information qualifies them to bypass.
