The Arizona Department of Transportation has announced that they’ll be installing Drivewyze Preclear systems at new locations throughout the state.
The Drivewyze Preclear technology uses cameras and sensors embedded in the pavement to automatically check a truck’s weight and registration. If the system detects a potential violation, the driver will receive notification to pull over for an inspection via smart phone or an electronic logging device.
ADOT: Drivewyze System To Cut Down On Truck Inspections By 95%
ADOT predicts that the Drivewyze system will cut down on manual truck inspections by 95%. According to ADOT’s Tim Lane, “Using cutting-edge technology allows us to enforce safety requirements on trucks that enter Arizona while letting trucks that comply with our rules to continue on their way. We’re eliminating friction that can be costly for both the trucking companies and the state of Arizona.”
Over the next month, ADOT plans to install the technology at the following locations:
- Interstate 8: Yuma
- Interstate 10: Ehrenberg near the California line, and San Simon near the New Mexico line
- Interstate 15: St. George, just north of the Arizona-Utah line
- Interstate 40: Topock near the California line, and Sanders near the New Mexico line
- State Route 68 and US 93: Kingman
Similar technology is already in place at the McGuireville Rest Area on I-17, the Canoa Ranch Rest Area on I-19 and the Sacaton Rest Area on I-10, according to ADOT.
