Brian Snell, who aided

woman in wrong-way

crash, named Highway

Angel of the Year

For most people, there are only a

handful of instances in their lives

that call for an act of heroism.

“We’d all like to believe that if the

situation presented itself, each of

us would be able to step up and

offer assistance to others in their

time of need,” Truckload Carriers

Association Chairman Dan Doran

said March 12 at the general session

of the closing day of the Truckload

Carriers Association’s 81st Annual

Convention.

With as much time as professional

truck drivers spend out on the open

road, they are more likely than most

folks to come across fellow travelers

who need help. And every year, the

industry produces several stories of

drivers who step up to offer their assistance.

In 1997, TCA created the Highway

Angels program “to improve the public’s

image of the trucking industry by

highlighting positive stories of professional

truck drivers who display exemplary

acts of kindness, courtesy, and

courage while on the job,” Doran said.

Thanks to the generosity of EpicVue,

TCA is able to show their appreciation

to the recipients.

The Highway Angel program celebrates

drivers and their stories of

heroism throughout the year. One of

these drivers is then chosen for special

recognition at TCA’s annual convention

as the Highway Angel of the Year.

“EpicVue is honored to recognize

these incredible professional truck drivers,

who put themselves sometimes in

great danger to help a fellow truck driver,

a motorist, and even a small child

who may be wandering alone in the

dark,” said EpicVue CEO Lance Platt

at this year’s Highway Angel of the

Year presentation as he and recording

artist Lindsay Lawler introduced this

year’s recipient, Brian Snell, a regional

trainer with Bangor, Maine-based

Pottle’s Transportation.

Lawler, the official spokesperson for

the Highway Angel program whose

song “Highway Angel” is a tribute to the

spirit of the program and to the drivers

who personify that spirit, said Snell “is

passionate about what he does, humble,

and an overall brilliant example of

what this program aims to highlight.”

A brief video prior to the presentation

described the early-morning rescue for

which Snell was being honored. After

the ceremony, he recalled the incident

in his own words.

Snell was driving on I-495 in

Massachusetts at about 2:15 a.m. on

June 8, 2018, when he saw the headlights

of a vehicle driving the wrong way

up ahead before it hit something and

spun out to a stop. Snell stopped his

truck in the middle of the road, blocking

oncoming traffic from the crashed car.

As other motorists stopped, Snell got

out of his truck to assess the situation.

The car’s front end was mangled, and

the woman behind the wheel was

unconscious.

Snell is no stranger to emergency

situations. He joined the Marines in

1989, but an injury sustained in boot

camp curtailed his military career. After

his discharge in 1992, he spent nearly

five years as a paramedic in Nashua,

New Hampshire, near his hometown of

Merrimack, before becoming a sheriff’s

department rescue worker.

“I used to do a lot of high-angle rescue

work,” Snell said. “It’s rope work.

We were up on ledges, mountain work

and all that.”

Even in his spare time, Snell has

done “a ton of volunteering,” he

said, including rescue work on New

Hampshire’s Mount Washington. At

6,288 feet, Mount Washington is the

highest peak in the Northeast and part

of the Appalachian Trail. It is popular

with hikers, cyclists and gliders, but

“I used to do a lot of highangle

rescue work,” Snell

said. “It’s rope work. We

were up on ledges, mountain

work and all that.”

weather conditions can turn treacherous

quickly.

“And when the World Trade Center

went down I wound up going to Ground

Zero working search and rescue down

there,” Snell added.

Snell spent five days as a volunteer

at Ground Zero “literally digging

in the dirt and going through the pile

itself.” He was among the many rescue

workers who became casualties of the

attack after the fact. Part of his diaphragm

became paralyzed and he lost

a lung due to the prolonged exposure

to the particulate matter in the air at

Ground Zero.

“Obviously, after 911, law enforcement

was out because of the disability

with my lung,” Snell said.

Snell was already on his way to

becoming a full-time professional truck

driver. “My grandfather for years told

me to get my truck license,” Snell said.

“I was like, ‘I don’t

want to be a truck

driver.’” But during an

economic downturn he

took his grandfather’s

advice and started a

gradual transition from

emergency work into

trucking.

In those early morn-

ing hours last June, Snell’s professional

worlds came together when he came

to the driver’s assistance.

“The car was on fire,” he said. “I put

the flames out with the fire extinguisher.

Then I started working on her to

make sure she was conscious and

breathing and all that.”

While he was doing that, he heard

one of the other motorists who had

stopped to help yelling some distance

away that they “couldn’t get in.” That’s

when Snell realized that another vehicle

had been involved in the crash.

“I thought she’d just bounced off

the guardrail,” Snell said, but she had

collided head-on with another car. He

went over to the second car and saw

the driver, a 32-year-old man, was

dead inside.

There was a dog inside the car,

and Snell had to smash a window

to get to it. As it happened, the

first officer on the scene was a K-9

officer, so Snell left the dog in his

care, then returned to the first car to

phone calls.

He said when

him about honoring

him for his efforts,

he didn’t return their

“I don’t do what I do to be recognized,

you know what I mean?” he said. “And

finally my company got involved and

said, ‘You got to call back.’”

Barry Pottle, president of Pottle’s

Transportation, said when he heard

about the incident and how Snell performed

in the emergency, he was

impressed, but he wasn’t a bit surprised.

“If you or I would have been in that

situation, we would have been frantic,”

Pottle said. But with Snell’s background

and training, he had the knowhow and

the experience to take charge of the

scene. But even more so, Pottle said,

this was a demonstration of character.

“Brian’s just a great, unique person,”

Pottle said. “He’s just calm, and cool

and collected and he just has a way

about him that he can just maintain

himself and get the job done. He’s a

great driver, he’s a great family man,

and I think what he did that morning,

was unbelievable.”

Brian Snell, who aided

woman in wrong-way

crash, named Highway

Angel of the Year

Being named a Highway Angel was

an honor, Snell said. When he heard

he had been named Highway Angel

of the Year, he was “ecstatic,” but he

admitted he’s had mixed emotions

because of the circumstances around

the incident.

The woman in the first car was

intoxicated at the time of the crash.

She has been charged with vehicular

homicide.

“It’s a very bittersweet award to

accept,” Snell said. “I’m literally being

honored for saving someone who

killed somebody.

“Hopefully, she changes her ways.”

he said.

The Highway Angel of the Year

was created to honor those drivers

who best embody the spirit of the

Highway Angel program. Snell, 50, has

been doing rescue work of one kind

or another, both professionally and

as a volunteer, since he was on the

American Red Cross Disaster Team in

high school. That’s roughly 35 years of

putting himself on the line to help others.

He’s even delivered a baby along

the roadside.

Putting yourself out there for your

fellow human beings is simply part of

the values by which he was raised.

“My whole family is community driven,”

he said.

“The Lord has always told everybody

he wants us to be the Good

Samaritan, and I don’t pass that up.

Anybody I can help, I try to do anything

I can for them.”

“Brian’s just a great, unique person,” Pottle

said. “He’s just calm, and cool and collected

and he just has a way about him that he can

just maintain himself and get the job done.

He’s a great driver, he’s a great family man,

and I think what he did that morning, was

unbelievable.”

Entertainment Beat

Lets All Go to the Movies

I’m a huge movie fan. My interest in

motion pictures began when I was about

5-years-old. After having my tonsils removed,

my mother and dad purchased a very small

movie projector that I could enjoy while my

very sore throat was healing. After plugging

the projector into the electrical device in my

bedroom, I could turn an attachment on the

side of the projector with my hand and view

the “Three Stooges” on the bedroom wall!

The only thing I can remember is how excited

I was to be able to make the comedians move

while turning that attachment!

I would attend movies at one of the two

theaters in my hometown, Shamrock, Texas

every Saturday afternoon. My mother utilized

these theaters as “baby-sitters” for me. She

would purchase my admission ticket at the

box-office, walk inside the theater with me,

purchase a big bag of popcorn and a soft drink

for me, and help me find a seat. Then, she

would exit the theater and head for the various

stores in Shamrock to do some shopping

while I viewed the exciting movies on the giant

screen.

The Saturday movie menu always

consisted of a western featuring Johnny

Mack Brown, Buck Jones or another one of

favorites, a mystery or comedy feature, a

hilarious cartoon and a chapter from whatever

serial had been booked. The serials, known as

“cliff-hangers”, consisted of 12 or 15 exciting

chapters. One chapter, about 15 minutes

in length, would be shown every Saturday.

These gems always ended with the hero in

the serial facing a very dangerous, threatening

situation as the chapter ended, making me

most anxious to see the next chapter on the

next Saturday.

As I grew older, the more serious movies

caught my attention, drawing me to the

theaters throughout the week.

Eventually, I was determined to become

active in the motion picture business. I never

thought of becoming an actor, but I set some

serious thoughts toward becoming a movie

director, although I never had the chance to

become one.

I did have the opportunity to become a

“music coordinator” in the movie, “A Perfect

World”, starring Clint Eastwood and Kevin

Costner. Warner Brothers hired me to select

the music that would fit the time-frame in the

movie. All the songs heard throughout “A

Perfect World” were recordings by various

artists that were popular during the year

the activity on the screen was presumably

happening. After the movie ended, I was so

thrilled to see my name on the “credits” that

were rolling on the big screen. In big, bold

print are the words: “Music coordinated by Bill

Mack Productions”.

Incidentally, some of the recordings I

chose for that movie include “Ida Red” by Bob

Wills and his Texas Playboys … “Abilene” by

George Hamilton IV … “Please Help Me I’m

Falling” by Hank Locklin … “Blue, Blue Day”

by Don Gibson … “Catch A Falling Star” by

Perry Como … “Guess Things Happen That

Way” by Johnny Cash … “Night Life” by Rusty

Draper … and “Dark Moon” by Eric Jacobson

and Chris Isaak. I often wondered why Bonnie

Guitar’s version of “Dark Moon” wasn’t used

in the movie, since her recording of the song

was the big hit that I had chosen for the film.

I discovered that the Jacobson and Isaak

recording was released on Reprise Records,

owned by Warner Brothers Music. Since

Warner Brothers also filmed “A Perfect World”,

I realized why the brothers chose to ignore

my suggestion that Bonnie Guitar’s recording

of “Dark Moon” be used and allowed Erik

Jacobson and Chris Isaak to earn a bit of

royalty loot for their Reprise record label. This

wasn’t a dishonest choice, it was simply a

business decision made by Warner Brothers.

Out of curiosity, I just googled the

information that these recordings were popular

during the year 1958. Since the movie, “A

Perfect World”, was about a prisoner escaping

from jail, I presume all of the exciting action

took place in 1958. In case you’re interested,

Kevin Costner was the prisoner and Clint

Eastwood plays the part of the Texas Ranger

who tracks him down. Clint also directed the

movie.

I also had the opportunity to do some of

the narration for a documentary feature titled,

“My Architect, a son’s journey”, based on

the life of Louis I. Kahn, widely considered

to have been the most important architect of

the second half of the twentieth century. This

was a very interesting and enjoyable feature

that would be chosen as an Academy Award

Nominee for the Best Documentary Feature.

Although it didn’t win that awesome award,

it did receive some rave reviews. The noted

movie columnist, Leonard Maltin, proclaimed

the documentary to be “One of the Best Films

of This or Any Year!” (I just double-checked

that quote by Leonard on the cover of the

DVD copy of the movie which I now have in

my collection.)

Finally, I did get my chance to become a

“movie-star” when my friend Marty Robbins

called me in 1970 demanding that I fly to

Nashville and make my mark as an actor in

a movie titled, “Country Music”. He shouted,

“This movie will make you a star, Bill! You can

give up that all-night radio program, move to

Hollywood and live in a mansion!”

I flew to Nashville, Marty met me at

the airport and drove me directly to the

“set” where my part in the movie was to be

filmed. The director ordered me to rush to the

“makeup” area where a young lady applied

the makeup. The director then told me to go

directly to the set where I was to sit behind a

table with a microphone on top of it. He said,

“When Marty walks in with his guitar, just chat

with him for a minute-or-so, then ask him to

sing a song. You know … just be yourself!”

I asked, “Isn’t there a script for me?”

The director replied, “As I said, just be

yourself. Pretend you’re on the radio doing

your program. When Marty walks in, surprising

you, talk for a minute with him then ask him to

sing a song!”

There was a pause before the director

asked, “Ready?”

I replied, “I guess I am.”

The director shouted, “Action!”

I blabbed to the microphone for about oneminute

before Marty walked up to the table,

smiling. We chatted about something before

I asked him to sing a song. He picked up the

guitar, sang a song, stood up and told me he

had to rush to catch a plane!

The director shouted, “That’s a ‘take’!”

When “Country Music” was finally

released, I had a chance to view it at a small

movie theater in Fort Worth. I had invited

some friends to join me. When my part in the

film hit the big screen, I slowly slid down in my

seat in total embarrassment.

“Country Music”, starring Marty Robbins

and Many Well-Known Country Music

Personalities was never released as a DVD

for the world to enjoy because it was such a

“bomb” at the box-office!

PILOT FLYING J LAUNCHES NEW VIRTUAL MAINTENANCE

SYSTEM AS PART OF TRUCK CARE SERVICES

Pilot Flying J has launched its new virtual

maintenance system, Fleet Center,

as part of the company’s Truck Care

service platform.

Available in April, Pilot Flying J’s Fleet Center allows

Truck Care technicians to focus on providing

the best and fastest service to get drivers back on

the road, according to Dave Latimer, vice president

of shop strategies and operations for Pilot Flying J

Truck Care.

The portal provides fleets 24/7, real-time visibility

and flexibility to manage their equipment —

reducing downtime, increasing speed of service

and improving account management for fleets and

professional drivers.

“With the launch of Fleet Center, we are eager to

dramatically change how fleets do business with

our truck care service,” Latimer said. “By providing

a centralized portal, Fleet Center will make it

easier and faster for fleets to manage the service

of their trucks. Our goal is to remove the stress

and complexity of managing fleet service and get

drivers back on the road as quickly as possible by

providing our customers a window into their Truck

Care account at the touch of a button.”

The virtual maintenance system will provide

fleets with access to time-saving features such as:

• Service management: no phone calls, just

easy business when it comes to scheduling services,

generating and authorizing work orders, and

receiving detailed cost of repair estimates

• Real-time notifications: receive immediate

status updates for in route, on-site and roll times

• Live chat: users can live chat with Truck Care

representatives for quick customer service needs,

and

• Service records: fleets will benefit from reduced

paperwork and improved accuracy of records

with full access to service history and transaction

details.

Rolled out in 2017, Latimer said Pilot Flying J

Truck Care continues to grow with 24 service centers

and more than 135 roadside assistance vehicles

in 36 states to provide professional drivers

with maintenance needs on and off the interstate.

With state-of-the-art facilities and certified technicians

available 24-hours-a-day, Pilot Flying

J Truck Care is dedicated to getting drivers

back on the road quickly and safely, he

said.

As part of its commitment to quality service,

the company is now offering a simplified,

competitive pricing structure for

preventative maintenance services.

Backed by a nationwide limited warranty,

the new flat price for a full preventative

maintenance service with conventional oil

is $299.99 for all engine types.

J Truck Care and to find service center

NETRADYNE OFFERS NEW VISIONPRO WITH 8

DIFFERENT CAMERA ANGLES FOR GREATER VISIBILITY

Netradyne, a provider of artificial intelligence

(AI) technology focusing on

driver and fleet safety, has launched

VisionPRO, a new integrated vision

safety system that allows customers

to choose up to eight different camera angles to

capture and analyze greater visibility for driving

events.

Traditionally, vision-safety systems within commercial

fleets have had difficulty capturing the

back or side of a truck, in many cases leading to

“mystery damages” should an accident occur.

With VisionPRO, camera views are seamlessly integrated

into the Driveri portal giving fleet managers

the ability to access desired views from a given

incident, according to Adam Kahn, vice president

of fleet business for Netradyne.

The further context protects drivers who may

have been rear-ended or side swiped, which until

now, would only be a speculative case for certain

incidents due to a lack of visual evidence, he said.

While Driveri’s current system captures and analyzes

every minute of the driving day, allowing for

more positive coaching between driver and fleet

manager and providing increased litigation mitigation,

the addition of VisionPRO takes it a step further.

Different camera views mean increased opportunities

for driver engagement and protection,

as well as more protection in cases of false claims.

“At Netradyne, we are continually looking for

ways to improve Driveri to protect drivers and

create opportunities for positive driving conversations,”

Kahn said. “What we realized was most

legacy camera systems out there had various

blind spots that could allow for punitive measures

to be taken without the full breadth of an event.

With VisionPRO, drivers and fleet managers alike

can rest easy knowing that nearly all angles of

the truck are covered, protecting them from false

accusations.”

Netradyne’s Driveri is a vision-based driver

retention and safety platform for commercial vehicles,

which captures and analyzes every minute

of every driving day. The platform uses a highquality

HD cameras to provide a complete view of

the road along with advanced AI

and Edge Computing technologies

to analyze driver behavior

and relay data to fleet managers

immediately.

For more information visit

www.netradyne.com.

Founded in 2015, Netradyne

has technology innovation centers

in both San Diego and Bangalore,

India, where teams are

hyper-focused on launching a

driver safety platform for commercial

vehicles.

and Bowyer made his complaints known

beside Jones’ driver’s window.

“It’s just, what are you going to do?

Turn him right in front of the field and

hurt him?” Bowyer told FOX Sports postrace.

“I mean, he puts you in a bad situation.

I lifted for him and it cost me three

spots right there. We should’ve finished

second. Everybody knows that. That was

dumb on his part. I guess that’s what he

wants, just go down and wreck him in

front of the field. I mean, you’ve got a

run like that, you don’t just move up. I

should’ve just wrecked him, I guess.”

Jones had a different point of view.

“I’d be mad if I was him, but it’s just

racing,” Jones said. “I’ve been blocked

a lot, especially with this package and

I haven’t done a lot of blocking, so you

have to get aggressive and fight for every

position. That’s all I was doing at the

end of the race. We were taking the white

flag and you’re going for it. It’s unfortunate.

You don’t want people upset, but

feelings are going to get hurt and you’ll

move on and we’ll be fine next week.”

In the race 23 lead changes among

12 drivers saw overtime and a late race

scramble, which ended up seeing Brad

Keselowski take the win in the Digital

Ally 400, his second win at Kansas

Speedway.

“I thought this would be a strong

showing for this rules package,” said

Keselowski, who took to social media to

tout that tonight’s race might be one of

the best races at an intermediate track in

a while. “We ran closer than we ever here

before. I think Paul and the team made

some good adjustments. They were able

to dial it in and kudos to them.”

Alex Bowman led 67 laps and finished

third for the third straight week. It was

his third top-10 finish in eight races at

Kansas Speedway. Eric Jones finished

third, his third top-10 finish at the facility.

Hometown favorite Clint Bowyer finished

fifth.

TRUCKINGNEWS

CVSA’S OPERATION

SAFE DRIVER WEEK

SET FOR JULY 14-20 WITH

FOCUS ON SPEEDING

Law enforcement personnel will be on the lookout for

drivers engaging in dangerous driver behaviors July 14-20

for the annual Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA)

Operation Safe Driver Week. Drivers engaged in unsafe driving

behaviors will be pulled over by law enforcement and

may be issued a warning and/or citation.

The Operation Safe Driver Program was created to help

to reduce the number of crashes, deaths and injuries involving

large trucks, buses and passenger

vehicles due to unsafe driving behaviors.

The program is sponsored by CVSA, in

partnership with the Federal Motor Carrier

Safety administration (FMCSA) and with

support from industry and transportation

safety organizations.

The initiative aims to help improve the

behavior of all drivers operating in an unsafe

manner — either in or around commercial

motor vehicles — through educational

and traffic enforcement strategies

to address individuals exhibiting high-risk

driving behaviors.

A press release issued by CVSA announcing

this year’s Operation Safe Driver

Week cited the National Highway Traffic

Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) 2015

Traffic Safety Facts report, which found

that drivers’ actions contribute to 94% of

all traffic crashes, with speeding being

one of the behaviors most responsible for traffic crashes.

The CVSA also cited other statistics regarding the dangers

of speeding:

• In 2017, speeding was a contributing factor in 9,717, or

26%, of all traffic fatalities, according to NHTSA data.

•According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety

Highway Loss Data Institute, speeding has been a factor in

more than a quarter of crash deaths since 2008.

•According to FMCSA’s 2016 Large Truck and Bus Facts,

speeding was the most frequent driver-related crash factor

for drivers of commercial motor vehicles and passenger

vehicles.

•During last year’s Operation Safe Driver Week, 16,909

passenger vehicle drivers and 1,908 commercial motor vehicle

drivers were issued citations for speeding. In addition,

17 commercial motor vehicle drivers and 714 passenger

vehicle drivers were cited for driving too fast for the conditions.

For these reasons, CVSA selected speeding as the emphasis

area for this year’s Operation Safe Driver Week, and

law enforcement jurisdictions throughout North America

will be endorsing, promoting and supporting the slogan

“Late won’t kill you, speeding will.”

“For more than two decades, speeding has been involved

in nearly one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities,”

said CVSA President Chief Jay Thompson with the Arkansas

Highway Police. “That is unacceptable, especially because

it’s preventable. We will continue to educate the public on

the dangers of speeding and we will identify individuals who

are speeding on our roadways and may issue citations as a

deterrent to future speeding tendencies and to affect driver

behavior.”

In addition to the emphasis on speeding, law enforcement

personnel will be tracking other dangerous driver

behaviors throughout Operation Safe Driver Week, such as

distracted driving, texting, failure to use a seatbelt, following

too closely, improper lane change, reckless or aggressive

driving, failure to obey traffic control devices, evidence of

drunk or drugged driving, etc.

A 2014 study titled “Do Traffic Tickets Reduce Motor

Vehicle Accidents? Evidence from a Natural Experiment,”

investigated whether traffic violation enforcement actually

reduces the number of motor vehicle crashes. The study’s

author used one of the best-known enforcement programs,

Click It or Ticket, which focuses on mandating seat belt

use and ticketing violators. The study found that the Click

It or Ticket campaign decreased motor vehicle crashes by

roughly 11 percent and found that a 1 percent increase in ci-

50 TRUCKER’S CONNECTION powered by Truck Job Seekers


TRUCKINGNEWS

tations issued led to a 0.28 percent decline in motor vehicle

crashes. The ticketing campaign also reduced the number

of nonfatal injuries from motor vehicle crashes.

As unpopular as traffic citations are among drivers, we

know that driver behavior does respond to contacts with law

enforcement and warnings and citations,” Thompson said.

“Roadway safety is our top priority and this traffic enforcement

initiative supports our goal of making sure everyone

driving on our roadways is doing so safely.”

To find out about Operation Safe Driver Week enforcement

events going on in a given area, contact the agency or

department responsible for overseeing commercial motor

vehicle safety within that jurisdiction.

DRIVEWYZE

COMPLETES WEIGH

STATION BYPASS COVERAGE

THROUGHOUT MISSOURI

Drivewyze has completed its service site rollout in Missouri

at all 19 weigh stations across the state. Drivewyze

PreClear weigh station bypass is now operational at all Missouri

locations, delivering weigh station bypass opportunities

to its customers driving in the state.

“Our bypass service network is second to none in Missouri,”

said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze.

“Drivewyze is the largest provider of weigh station bypass

service by a factor of almost two — with more than 750

service sites in North America.

“By providing more bypass opportunities than our competitors,

we enable our customers to

earn a higher safety return on investment

than anyone else in the industry.

The time has never been better

for carriers to adopt weigh station

bypass or switch away from transponder-based

systems. Now, they

can maximize our bypass services in

Missouri and enjoy the same extended

coverage of our transponder-free

services offer across the country.”

The final four activated Missouri

Drivewyze sites are located in Kearney

(northbound), Platte City (northbound)

and Willow Springs (both east

and westbound). Kearney is on I-35,

northeast of Kansas City (between

Kansas City and Des Moines, Iowa);

Platte City is on I-29, northwest of

Kansas City (between KC and Omaha, Nebraska); and Willow

Springs is on Highway 60/63, southeast of Springfield.

“Missouri is a centralized state in the U.S., home to

major trucking lanes connecting the west and east coasts,”

Heath said. “With hundreds of trucking companies based

in the state, we are pleased to offer statewide services to

all carriers operating in Missouri, as well as those passing

through. This is another step forward for Drivewyze and our

customers and we look forward to continue revolutionizing

the freight industry with world-class service and technology.

More bypasses not only improve a carrier’s bottom line,

it makes a positive impact on drivers’ lives.”

Carriers can eliminate the cost and administration of

traditional transponders with Drivewyze. The Drivewyze

PreClear weigh station bypass service is integrated with

existing in-cab equipment like electronic logging devices,

smartphones, tablets and other telematics systems. Customers

can now receive bypass opportunities in 42 states

and two Canadian provinces.

The Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application

is available on a number of Drivewyze partner platforms,

including Omnitracs, Orbcomm, PeopleNet, Transflo,

Rand McNally, Platform Science, ISSAC and Switchboard.

The application is also available for drivers to download on

Android and iOS-based tablets or smartphones.

Fleets can request a free weigh station activity report

to help them determine how much time and money they

could save by using Drivewyze PreClear.

Drivewyze comes with a free Weigh Station Heads-

Up service for real-time notifications at more than 1,200

weigh stations and inspection sites nationwide.
