Utah will become the 25th state to use PrePass technology when it installs the electronic weigh station bypass service at its major weigh stations during the first quarter of 2006.

The technology will be installed first at the state Department of Transportation’s inspection facilities in Perry on Interstate 15. Other inspection facilities to be equipped include eastbound and westbound I-80 at Wendover, southbound I-15 at Echo and northbound I-15 at St. George. Deployment of PrePass at the Kanab and Peerless inspection facilities is under review.

PrePass technology makes it possible for participating motor carriers to comply electronically with state weight, safety and credential requirements at weigh stations and ports of entry while traveling at highway speeds. Currently more than 350,000 commercial vehicles use PrePass nationwide.
