ADVANTAGE: Motor Carrier Companies Save Time and Money
With the new technology, CMVs that are compliant with motor carrier laws and regulations may bypass the inspection station at the specific rest areas since only non-compliant vehicles are directed by the technology system to stop for an inspection.
ADVANTAGE: Less Traffic Congestion, More Traffic Safety
Fewer CMVs are required to be inspected. That means less traffic congestion in the rest areas, a smoother transition for the trucks to enter/exit the rest areas, and better traffic flow and safety for all motorists.
Truck Screening Technology Locations
When CMVs approach the rest areas in which the technology is installed, drivers will be directed by roadside signage to be in the right lane.
The new Truck Screening Systems technology will be located at:
- McGuireville Rest Area (Interstate 17 between Flagstaff and Camp Verde) technology operational in May 2015
- Canoa Ranch Rest Area (Interstate 19 between Tucson and Nogales) technology operational in June 2015
- Sacaton Rest Area (Interstate 10 between Phoenix and Casa Grande) technology operational in July 2015
