How It Works #

  • Your device receives information a safe distance before a risk zone
  • Your device beeps and a virtual road sign will appear on screen
  • After ten seconds the alert will fade, or you can tap it to dismiss

Drivewyze Alerts & Advisories are selected based on CMV traffic density and collision history. Not all hazardous driving areas will trigger notifications. Drivewyze is not a substitute for truck-safe navigation. Drivers are still responsible for following posted signage and using their judgement to drive safely.
