PrePass Safety Alliance Adds Locations on Key Routes, Grows Florida Agriculture Sites

Already the leading truck safety bypass and data platform in North America, PrePass Safety Alliance adds 36 pre-clearance and bypass locations in four states.

PHOENIX, AZ – August 6, 2020 – PrePass-approved carriers now enjoy even more opportunities to save time, money and fuel. In the past six months, PrePass Safety Alliance equipped an additional 30 agricultural inspection sites and six weigh stations in Texas, Louisiana and Montana that are now eligible for pre-clearance and bypass services.

PrePass Safety Alliance partnered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) to offer PrePass Ag. This service allows commercial carriers that do not haul dedicated agricultural cargo to bypass select agricultural inspection stations in Florida in the same way they can bypass PrePass equipped weigh stations.

PrePass Ag is available as a free add-on service to PrePass or PrePass Plus accounts. While there is no charge to apply for a permit to bypass agricultural inspections stations, carriers must still submit an application to FDACS.

“Adding these sites helps qualified carriers save time and money while taking an active role in making highways safer,” said PrePass Safety Alliance President and CEO Mark Doughty. “We partner with states to choose locations on routes that truckers actually use and provide them with the benefits of both a bypass mobile app (PrePass MOTION™) and an RFID transponder.”

New PrePass equipped weigh station bypass locations include:

  • Louisiana:  Starks EB and WB Hwy 12
  • Montana: Wibaux WB I-94
  • Texas: Mt. Pleasant EB and WB I-30, Queen City EB US 59

These new PrePass Ag and weigh station sites also offer bypass service using PrePass MOTION™ mobile application for iOS and Android powered smartphones and tablets, as well as for select telematics devices. PrePass MOTION includes safety ALERTS™, proactive notifications of upcoming road hazards including high wind areas, steep grades and roads that prohibit commercial vehicle traffic.

PrePass Safety Alliance provides PrePass®, the leading truck safety bypass and data platform in North America. PrePass allows states to preclear qualified commercial motor carriers to bypass inspection facilities at highway speeds and also provides driver safety ALERTS™, electronic toll payment services and INFORM™ Safety and Tolling software. Over 600,000 commercial vehicles from more than 77,000 fleets utilize PrePass services to save time, fuel and money.
