GPS showing Bypass on screenDrivewyze was awarded a contract to operate its Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service in the state of California.

The installation work, which includes integrating the Drivewyze service with existing weigh-in-motion scales, is now underway at all 37 locations where the state has chosen to operate bypass services. Drivewyze expects to be fully operational in the state within the next 60 days.

The weigh stations and inspection sites are located on many of California’s major transportation routes and will add to the 650 service sites with the Drivewyze service in 42 states and provinces, making it the largest bypass service in North America in terms of total sites and states.

“Our expansion into California is welcome news to fleets and drivers that operate in that state,”said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze. “We’re looking forward to helping ease congestion in and around California weigh stations, improving freight flow throughout the state and making the highways safer.”

The Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application is available pre-loaded on leading in-cab telematics and ELD devices and can also be downloaded from the app stores for Apple and Android devices.

Drivewyze comes with a free Weigh Station Heads-Up service for real-time notifications at more than 1,200 weigh stations and inspection sites nationwide.
