More than 426,000 commercial motor carriers have enrolled in the PrePass weigh station safety screening system, bringing participation to an all-time high.
“The recent growth in participation by motor carriers is a testament to bottom line safety and economic benefits carriers receive,” said Richard A Clasby, president and chief executive officer of HELP Inc, the PrePass service provider. “To date, carriers have saved more than 41 million hours of driver time, nearly 200 million gallons of fuel, and operating savings of $3.3 billion.”
PrePass is the nation’s largest truck safety e-screening program. Qualified motor carriers may electronically comply with state weight, safety, and credential requirements at 301 locations in 31 states while bypassing sites at highway speed.
Participation in PrePass is voluntary. To be eligible, carriers meet minimum state-established safety and credential requirements. Carriers pay a monthly service fee of about $17. More than 90% of the nation’s top 100 for-hire carriers and thousands of private fleets and owner-operators are saving time, money, and fuel with PrePass.
PrePass and its electronic toll collection companion service are operational at weigh stations and/or toll plazas in 38 states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. PrePass enables states to meet federal CVISN requirements.
