MTAC recently discussed benefits of the Drivewyze weigh station bypass service with the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles. Information provided to MTAC shows tangible benefits for Drivewyze users.
The industry saved more than 700 hours of time by not stopping at weigh stations and more than 3,300 gallons of fuel were saved. Combined, this is a total savings of $72,929 for just the month of June.
Environmental benefits were also realized, as there was a savings of 89 tons of C02 that were not emitted.
These numbers come from 37,850 visits by Drivewyze vehicles to Connecticut weigh stations in June. This represents a 259 percent increase over June 2016. Drivewyze users were able to bypass weigh stations 88 percent of the time. As a result, congestion on the highway approaching the weigh stations was minimized.
