NJDOT and IRD partner on NJPass weigh station bypass for commercial fleets

International Road Dynamics (IRD) has partnered with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to launch a new weigh station bypass system, NJPass, at all three inbound New Jersey weigh stations for commercial vehicles participating in the service.

Traffic statistics show that over 150,000 trucks encounter these three weigh stations on an annual basis creating a need for a traffic management tool like NJPass.

IRD sales manager for NJPass, Eric Hooks, said the technology allows compliant vehicles to keep moving past weighing facilities, saving money on fuel and time on routes. NJPass will assist New Jersey State Police and NJDOT to strike a balance between identifying violations, improving highway safety and facilitating efficient travel for the commercial vehicles using their roadways. He said it will aid in the reduction of traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions around the stations.
