Secrets Behind the Weigh Station 

Ever wonder what happens when a truck pulls into a weigh station? You might be surprised at what goes on at a modern weigh station, and the role technology plays in evaluating your trucks. Thermal cameras scan for bad brakes and sheared bolts as trucks pull in, automated license plate and Haz-Mat sticker readers run checks against state and federal databases. And behind it all, law enforcement personnel in the station manage complex systems to triage and sort trucks, trying to make the best use of limited resources in efforts to maximize public safety.  

If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at a scale, watch this webinar to hear firsthand, from a veteran law enforcement safety officer and Drivewyze expert, about current roadside inspection methods — and why it is that some trucks get pulled in while others get waived through, or bypass the scales completely.

Improving Driver Safety with In-Cab Hazard-Based Alerts 

Hundreds of thousands of commercial vehicles travel across the United States each and every day, operated by drivers who are focused on continuously changing road conditions and other driving tasks, all of which may cause them to miss critical road sign information. 

In this presentation, you’ll see first-hand how GPS hazard-based alerts in the cab are effectively reducing preventable accidents and learn:

  • The true impact risky driving conditions and driver behaviors have on overall driver safety, 
  • How one of North America’s largest fleets significantly improved driver safety over the course of a multi-year pilot, and  
  • The tangible ways in which GPS hazard-based warnings are improving driver behaviors and overall safety.

Commercial Truck Pre-Screening and Pre-Clearance in Ontario 

In an effort to improve safety and productivity in Ontario, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) has recently implemented new inspection pre-screening systems and a new inspection station pre-clearance service (Drivewyze PreClear) in Ontario. These new technologies screen commercial vehicles driving through Ontario for safety defects and over-weight loads as they approach an inspection station, and also provide the opportunity for commercial vehicles to bypass inspection stations – which means trucks can stay on the mainline, without having to pull-in. 

In this webinar, our speakers will explain: 

  • Which pre-screening technologies are deployed at inspection sites in Ontario, & how they improve safety 
  • How the Drivewyze pre-clearance technology works, and if your fleet is eligible to participate 
  • How pre-clearance can help you increase efficiency, save money, and keep drivers happy 

Speakers: 

  • Chris Davies, Manager, Carrier Enforcement Program Office with the Ministry of Transportation 
  • Doug Johnson, VP of Marketing, Drivewyze
