rest areas

Drivewyze announced Wednesday, April 8, it is now providing “open and closed” alerts for Florida’s 65 rest areas and welcome centers to help truck drivers find available parking during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Florida alerts were activated last week, joining Pennsylvania rest area alerts that went live on March 24. Drivewyze Safety Notification alerts are available and free to drivers subscribed to the Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service.

Drivers will see notifications around 25 miles out from a rest area, then again at roughly five miles out.
