We have added temporary open/closed rest area notifications to the Drivewyze Safety Notifications service, to help drivers plan ahead and find safe places to park. Drivers of fleets that are enrolled in the Drivewyze Safety Notifications service will automatically receive an in-cab notice “rest area open” or “rest area closed”, similar to Drivewyze PreClear’s bypass notifications. The rest area notifications are typically provided 25 miles and 5 miles in advance for the duration of the COVID-19 Emergency.
Rest Area notifications are currently being provided in some States.
And for the first time, Drivewyze has also started displaying real-time truck parking availability in some locations. Available now in Indiana and coming soon to other states, drivers equipped with Drivewyze Safety Notifications will not only be notified as to whether an upcoming rest area is opened or closed, but will also see how many parking spots are available.
The Drivewyze Safety Alerts service is available free of charge to Drivewyze PreClear subscribers, and is now also available as a stand alone subscription for carriers not enrolled in the PreClear weigh station bypass service.
Carriers can contact their Customer Success Manager if they are interested in activating their fleets in the Drivewyze Safety Notification service, or if they have any questions about the temporary Rest Area Notifications.
