Iowa has joined the list of states that are now included in Drivewyze’s Parking Alerts, a free service for Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass subscribers.
The system will alert drivers if a rest area is open or closed and also provide the number of parking spots available. In addition, Drivewyze is providing the number of parking spaces available at select truck stops and other locations that offer truck parking in Iowa.
A total of 22 Iowa locations with more than 500 parking spots along Interstates 80, 35 and 29 are in the Drivewyze system.
Drivers will receive in-cab notifications when they are 25 miles out from a location, then the information will be updated again when they are 5 miles out.
