Secrets Behind the Weigh Station: Drivewyze Webinar Gives you a Sneak Peek

Everyone loves secrets…and we aim to please by going behind the scenes to give you some insight.  Drivewyze recently held two webinars on “The Secrets Behind the Weigh Station: What Happens When Your Trucks Pull In”.  If you missed it, be sure to catch our encore – a video of the recording is below!

Did you know that thermal cameras scan for bad brakes and automated license plate readers run checks against state and federal databases? And behind it all, law enforcement personnel in the scale house, manage these complex systems to improve road safety. These are just a few ways technology plays an integral part in evaluating your trucks.

But, what happens when you enter a weigh station? And, why do some trucks get routed to a full inspection, while others are flagged on through?  Is it by chance, or are there subtle signs that law enforcement look for to determine inspections levels.

The webinar takes a look at the top questions surrounding weigh stations, including:

  • How law enforcement technologies identify unsafe vehicles
  • How law enforcement decides whether or not to inspect your vehicle
  • Tips on how to prepare your drivers and trucks for the scale house
  • Best practices in driver safety and ELD compliance training

The webinar is hosted by Drivewyze’s Brian Mofford, VP of government experience, and Rick Koontz, retired PSP corporal and our training consultant. Special guest, Lee Sarratt, J.B. Hunt’s director of safety, also provided his insight.
