Truck operators and fleets using the Norpass weigh station screening service in seven states and two provinces can soon add mobile-based weigh station bypass opportunities in 15 more states following the announcement today of a partnership reached between Drivewyze and Norpass.
The partnership between Drivewyze, a mobile-based inspection site bypass service, and Norpass, the North American Preclearance and Safety System, also includes a special offer for Norpass users who sign up for the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service.
Any Norpass user can sign up and receive 60 days of free Drivewyze PreClear bypass, plus an additional 50 percent discount for the next two months. The Drivewyze PreClear regular price starts at $7.99 per vehicle per month for a single state and $12.99 per vehicle per month for multi-state plans.
Norpass members can sign up at www.drivewyze.com/norpass/ to take advantage of the special offer, which expires on Dec. 31, 2014. The special offer will allow Norpass users to access Drivewyze services on a variety of supported mobile tablets and smartphones. It is available to any Norpass member or user for new Drivewyze PreClear subscriptions.
Drivewyze PreClear currently serves 16 states and 225 inspection sites across the United States, with more added each month.
Drivewyze PreClear adds transponder-like functionality to mobile tablets and smartphones. Drivewyze provides truck operators and local and long-haul carriers with bypass opportunities at both fixed stations and roadside mobile inspection sites. Drivewyze PreClear offers simple visual and audible instructions for drivers to either bypass weigh stations and inspection sites, or to safely pull-in. The company says it is both safe and easy to use, with assured privacy and data protection, meeting both federal and state distracted driving laws.
“Mobile-based bypass is enormously convenient—whether drivers are using in-cab tablets or smartphones,” said Norpass president Myron Rau.
Norpass serves members in Alaska, Connecticut, Idaho, New York, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, British Columbia and Quebec.
