National PrePass benefits since 1997*

North Dakota has been part of the PrePass system since 2017 and currently has PrePass deployed at 11 sites. Across North Dakota and the nation, PrePass helps facilitate freight movement by allowing prequalified* trucks to be electronically screened and then safely bypass weigh stations at highway speeds. 

PrePass is a service offered by PrePass Safety Alliance, formerly HELP Inc., a public private partnership (P3) established in 1993 between states and the trucking industry. The Alliance is the nation’s only non-profit P3 established specifically to promote safety and efficiency in commercial transportation.
