Weigh Station Bypass Options for Commercial Carriers
Kansas Highway Patrol partners with PrePass electronic pre-screening and bypass service for qualified carriers, enabling their trucks to safely bypass weigh stations and save time, fuel and money. Since 2001, HELP Inc., the non-profit public/private partnership that offers the PrePass suite of services, has enjoyed a beneficial partnership with our governmental and motor carrier industry partners in Kansas. Through August 2016, the partnership has resulted in a HELP Inc. investment of over $3.2 million in deployment and ongoing maintenance of the PrePass system in Kansas, over 9 Million successful bypasses and has provided a cost savings to industry of over $65 million. HELP has supports improved safety for all highway users in Kansas and across the entire PrePass system.
Drivewyze PreClear Weigh Station Bypass Program: Kansas Highway Patrol partners with the Drivewyze PreClear bypass program to operate at 8 sites in the state. Commercial fleets and owner-operators that register with the Drivewyze PreClear bypass service are eligible to bypass these sites instead of always pulling in, at rates determined by the state of Kansas and based upon safety scores and other prerequisites. Drivewyze PreClear is not a transponder-based bypass system but runs instead as a GPS based application on smartphones, tablets and select in-cab telematics devices and ELDs.
