Washington State recently introduced a new program to allow certain truck drivers to bypass weigh stations. The program, named PrePass, is a weigh station transponder that eliminates the need to pull thorugh a weigh station. According to the Washington DOT website, Commercial Vehicle Information Systems and Networks (CVISN) leverages technology to improve commercial vehicle operation safety, efficiency and effectiveness; ultimately creating transparent borders for commercial vehicle operations and affiliated stakeholders throughout the Pacific Northwest, nationally and internationally.*
The pass works by passing under a transponder that tells the driver if they can continue without stopping by showing them a green or red light as they pass underneath.
The PrePass can help improve delivery efficiency and save fuel costs. If you’re a Washington State truck driver and feel you may be eligible for the PrePass, call 888-877-8567 to learn more.
