The Drivewyze PreClear bypass service has been added in South Dakota. The mobile-based weigh station and inspection site bypass service is available at 545 locations in 34 states, adding bypass opportunities for the first time 61 of South Dakota’s 65 sites. In the 2014 round of Overdrive‘s ongoing CSA’s Data Trail analysis of annual inspection/violation statistics, South Dakota ranks high in metrics favorable to truckers, near the bottom of the inspection-intensity category, for instance, registering only 2 inspections per lane-mile of National Highway System within the state’s borders.
It showed one of the largest shares of clean inspections, too, with 51 percent of all inspections reported with no violations.
Four fixed locations in the state that will now feature Drivewyze include:
*I-29 southbound at milemarker 235 near Sisseton
*I-90 westbound, near Exit 81-Russell Street in Sioux Falls
*I-29 northbound at milemarker 13 near Jefferson
*I-90 eastbound at milemarker 39 near Tilford

Drivewyze uses cellular technology and the internet to add transponder-like functionality to electronic logging devices, smartphones and tablets instead of dedicated short-range communication transponders and transponder readers. Drivewyze PreClear 3.0, the newest version of the weigh station application, comes with Weigh Station Heads-Up service for real-time notifications for more than 700 weigh stations and inspection sites nationwide. While the notification service is free, the bypass service is subscription-based and starts at $15.75 per vehicle per month with free trial offers and volume discounts available. The Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass application can be used on Android and iOS-based tablets or smartphones, and is integrated into PeopleNet Blu.2 and Tablet devices, the Zonar 2020 mobile communications tablet, and the Rand McNally TND 760 fleet management device.
