PrePass

What it is

PrePass lets qualified motor carriers comply with safety, weight and credential requirements while traveling at highway speeds, eliminating the need to stop at designated weigh stations and ports-of-entry saving them time, fuel and money.

PrePass also helps make the roadways safer for everyone by reducing congestion around inspection facilities and enabling state inspection and law enforcement teams to focus their efforts on carriers and trucks that demand more attention.

How it Works

PrePass states have placed signs on the highway alerting vehicles that they are approaching a PrePass-equipped weigh station. As with all weigh stations, trucks are required to be in the right hand lane(s). At some locations, there will be two lanes available for bypass, but trucks must remain prepared to stop in the event that they don’t get a green light.

1

About a mile before a PrePass-equipped weigh station, a PrePass truck is identified through communication between the in-cab transponder and the Advanced Vehicle Identification (AVI) reader.

2

The PrePass system automatically checks the truck’s safety and credential clearance status. The system also checks the truck’s weight to ensure that it is compliant with the jurisdiction’s regulations.

3

Based on a truck’s clearance status, the PrePass system sends a signal to the truck’s transponder, which notifies the driver of the screening result both visually and audibly. A green light indicates a bypass and a red light indicates that the driver must pull into the weigh station.

4

To help maintain system integrity, some PrePass trucks are randomly selected and receive a red light, requiring them to pull into the weigh station where a carrier’s compliance can be confirmed.

5

A roadside bypass compliance reader identifies when any non-compliant truck fails to pull into the weigh station.

6

A truck’s bypass screening signal will continue to flash for approximately 15 minutes after passing the weigh station. This valuable feature provides confirmation of the vehicle’s bypass status for both the driver and enforcement.

PrePass accurately identifies 99.99% of participating trucks and generates the bypass decision in 1 second..

PrePass Ag Service

What it is

PrePass has partnered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) to offer PrePass Ag, a service that allows commercial carriers to bypass select agricultural interdiction facilities in Florida in the same way that they bypass PrePass weigh stations.

PrePass Ag is offered as a free add-on to a PrePass or PrePass Plus account. There is no charge to apply, but FDACS will only approve motor carriers that do not haul dedicated agricultural cargo.
