|Green Signal: If all requirements for weight, size, safety, etc. are met, the driver receives a green signal that allows the vehicle to bypass the weigh station.|
|Red Signal: If all requirements for weight, size, safety, etc.are NOT met, the driver receives a red signal which requires the vehicle to go through the weigh station.|
|Non-PrePass™ vehicles: All heavy vehicles that are not registered in PrePass™ are required to pass through weigh stations that are open.|
|Program Statistics: The system has been in operation in California since 1994. Currently, there are 35 weigh stations across California deploying the PrePass™ technology.|
