“Drivewyze Free” Safety Service Unveiled At Geotab Connect 2024 

2 min read


LAS VEGAS, Feb 14, 2024 – Drivewyze, a technology leader with innovative safety and productivity solutions for fleets, drivers, and transportation agencies, is showcasing its new Drivewyze Free safety platform at Geotab Connect being held in Las Vegas.  

As the name infers, the new safety platform is free with no strings attached. For Geotab users, the alerts can be activated through the Geotab Marketplace, making activation fast and easy. 

Exclusive to Drivewyze, the company’s Drivewyze Free platform includes access to agency-sponsored real-time traffic slowdowns and other safety alerts generated in partnership with select State transportation and enforcement agencies through the Drivewyze Smart Roadways highway safety program for connected trucks. Currently, real-time message sets can include warnings for sudden and unexpected slowdowns, virtual safety signs, and public emergency broadcasts.  

Drivewyze-sponsored set of alerts and advisories includes heads-up warnings for High-Rollover risk areas, Low Bridges, Mountain alerts (steep grade ahead; chain-up/brake check stations; and runaway ramps), and Rest Area information (truck parking availability).  

“Safety is a shared vision that both Geotab and Drivewyze are deeply committed to. We are proud to contribute to this vision by offering easy and free activation through the Geotab Marketplace,” said Robin Kinsey, Senior Manager, Marketplace Sales. “These alerts will help notify drivers of various factors while on the road, allowing them to make informed decisions about their safety.” 

According to Frances Kilgour, Drivewyze vice president of business development, Drivewyze Free couldn’t have been launched without the support of its partners, like Geotab, and State agencies. “We can’t thank Geotab enough for all their support,” she said. “Like us, they understand the importance of highways safety and see the value of how in-cab messaging can alter driver behavior to help avoid accidents.”  

In fact, studies show that drivers slow down and apply less hard braking when an essential safety alert or advisory is displayed in the cab. When it comes to accidents, studies have shown that 52% of large truck occupant deaths occurred in crashes in which their vehicles rolled over. To help address that, when approaching a high-rollover area, Drivewyze has data to show that their alerts have reduced speed by an average of 7.3 mph for vehicles exceeding 5 mph over the posted speed limit. 

Many fleets already subscribing to Drivewyze services, such as the PreClear weigh station bypass service or the Drivewyze Safety+ driver coaching service (both available through the Geotab Marketplace), have been receiving free in-cab safety alerts as part of an optional bundle. These essential safety alerts are now included in Drivewyze Free, and have been expanded to include truck parking information and additional Smart Roadway state programs. Additional Drivewyze Free features and alerts will be added on a regular basis, automatically, without any interruption to a driver’s in-cab experience, and with no action required from a participating fleet.
