Drivers can now obtain oversize and overweight permits via smartphones from West Chester Permit’s online ordering system. The smartphone and tablet-friendly system enables drivers to both order permits and check the status of their orders anywhere they have Internet connection. Issued permits are automatically emailed to customers, which can then be printed. This option eliminates the need to drivers to wait on a fax while on the job. Android, Blackberry and Windows phones are recommended.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
