Drivewyze PreClear

Drivewyze, a US-based provider of technology services for the transportation industry, has introduced its commercial vehicle bypass service in Rhode Island, US.

Drivewyze PreClear, a new bypass service offered through smartphone, tablet and certain electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) technologies, is the first bypass programme provided in the state.

It offers bypass services at four mobile inspection sites in various vital locations across Rhode Island.

Rhode Island State Police sergeant Dave Medeiros said that the new move is a positive step forward for the state as it can now leverage new technology to create a safer and more efficient highway for both commercial and civilian drivers alike.

The new service, which does not require poles or transponders, leverages cellular networks and internet to enable smartphones, tablets and select EOBRs with a functionality that is similar to a transponder.

The Rhode Island Trucking Association and local authorities are working with Drivewyze to educate its members about the multiple benefits of this technology.

Drivewyze PreClear is currently being provided in Rhode Island to drivers and fleets, starting at $12.99 per month for interstate service.

Launched in September 2012, Drivewyze PreClear services provide an automated bypass solution for both permanent and mobile inspection sites, extending bypass services to local, low-volume and remote weigh stations and ports of entry.

In addition to Rhode Island, the service is currently active in 12 states across the eastern corridor of America, from Maine to Mississippi.

Drivewyze PreClear also offers intrastate billing options in select US states.

Drivewyze, founded in 2010, is a subsidiary of Intelligent Imaging Systems, a provider of road safety equipment and software services.
