DriveWyze PreClear Weigh Station Bypass Program
Kansas Highway Patrol has authorized the Drivewyze PreClear bypass program to operate in the state of Kansas. Commercial carriers and owner-operators that enroll in the Drivewyze PreClear bypass service are eligible to legally bypass open weigh stations and inspection sites instead of always pulling in, at bypass rates determined by Kansas Highway Patrol and based upon carrier safety scores and other state-defined prerequisites. Drivewyze PreClear is a software service that uses GPS and cellular communications, instead of a transponder, and runs hands-free on many brands of Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) and other in-cab telematics devices, including tablets and smartphones.
