Effective today, Rhode Island became the lucky 13th state to adopt Drivewyze™ PreClear, a new bypass service provided through smartphone, tablet and select Electronic On-Board Recorder (EOBR) technologies. The only bypass program offered in Rhode Island, Drivewyze PreClear provides bypass services at four mobile inspection sites in key locations throughout the state.
"We are delighted with the expansion of Drivewyze PreClear into Rhode Island," said Brian Heath, President of Drivewyze Inc. "Adding Rhode Island means Drivewyze PreClear is now active in 13 states across the eastern corridor of America, from Maine to Mississippi and now including Rhode Island."
Rhode Island is embracing the new service, which requires no poles or transponders. Drivewyze PreClear leverages cellular networks and the internet to enable smartphones, tablets and select Electronic On-Board Recorders (EOBRs) with transponder-like functionality.
"We are glad to be working with Drivewyze," stated Sergeant Dave Medeiros of the Rhode Island State Police. "This is a positive step forward for Rhode Island, as we can now leverage new technology to create a safer and more efficient highway for both commercial and civilian drivers alike."
Chris Maxwell of the Rhode Island Trucking Association agrees. "The Rhode Island Trucking Association is pleased, in conjunction with local authorities, to be working with Drivewyze to enlighten and educate our members concerning the numerous benefits of this technology."
Drivewyze PreClear is being offered in Rhode Island to drivers and fleets starting at $12.99 per month for interstate service.
Launched in early September 2012, Drivewyze PreClear has been growing rapidly ever since. Unlike other bypass programs, the affordably-priced Drivewyze PreClear services provide a convenient, safe, and secure automated bypass solution for both permanent sites and mobile inspection sites, extending bypass services to local, low-volume and remote weigh stations and ports of entry.
Drivewyze PreClear provides bypass services to previously un-served or under-served regions of North America, now providing bypass service in Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont, and extended bypass coverage throughout the Northeastern US, including the I-95 Corridor. Drivewyze PreClear also offers intrastate billing options in select states. For more information please visit www.drivewyze.com.
