Drivers and fleet managers tell us that the biggest benefits of PrePass are the time and money saved through bypassing scales and inspection stations. The FMCSA estimates the minimum cost of pulling into a weigh station at $8.68, and that’s just for static weighing or a credential check. In today’s operating environment, just a few minutes out of operation can make a difference between getting home or spending the night in a sleeper berth or hotel. Bypassing weigh stations also saves fuel, reduces wear and tear on the truck and provides both environmental and traffic congestion-mitigating benefits. Bypassing a weigh station means not needing to changes lanes, slow down or merge back into speeding traffic, improving highway safety for motor carriers and other motorists.
