Georgia Removes Choices for Weigh Station Bypass

by: Andrew

At HELP Inc., we are continually working to improve highway safety and efficiency through our products and services, including PrePass weigh station bypass. For 25 years, we have worked successfully with many states in the deployment of PrePass infrastructure and services at no cost to participating states and at minimal cost to our more than 57,000 fleet customers.

However, following major construction of weigh-in-motion scales by the state of Georgia, the Department of Transportation (GDOT) and Georgia Department of Public Safety (GDPS) have elected to provide only a state-run truck screening system from now on.

The State recently notified both HELP and Drivewyze that Georgia will no longer offer any third party pre-clearance choices, but instead have opted for a government-owned system.

We apologize for any inconvenience or loss of freight efficiency this may cause your company and drivers. If you have any questions about the State’s decision, or concerns about your bypassing within Georgia, we recommend you contact GDOT at (404) 631-1990 or GDPS at the Motor Carrier Compliance Division (MCCD) at (706) 935-5268. If you have any questions or concerns about your PrePass account, please contact us at (800) 773-7277.
