Transponders in Washington highways

Trucking lawyers in Washington should make a note on the new automated License Plate readers also called as Transponders to help officers find out the commercial drivers who are violating the Hours Of Service (HOS) rules.

Service your car frequently
Instead of waiting in line to get checked at a weight station the same check can be done on the highway using transponder.

Trucks passing through the weigh stations in Washington will be automatically screened by this technology for their size, weight, registration, and safety record.

In addition to this, the technology also helps trucking enforcement officers to check for the active hours of the truck. The State Patrol’s new software helps them to
¤ Ensure the accuracy in driver logbooks

¤ Check whether the drivers are maintaining their Hours Of Service (HOS) time limits.
Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and Washington State Patrol (WSP) has already launched more than 12 automated license plate readers throughout the state major weigh stations and entry points.

License plates and truck images are recorded every time a truck passes one of those 12 points, this makes WSP to note down the location the truck passes and also to cross-check that with the trucker’s logbook.

Recently, WSP has identified a minimum of 8 crashes where fatigued drivers had erroneous logbooks to lengthen their hours of service.

Also get to know about the usage of transponders on Idaho and Illinois highways from us. For more information about the new "At Your Service" shipping options from since 1964, please call (800) 227-7447
