International Road Dynamics
Allow for enforcement to be done remotely which may help address these challenges:
Local staffing at Vehicle Inspection Stations
Locations where commercial vehicle traffic may not justify permanent onsite staffing (enforcement for many sites can be done at a central location)
Operations for 24 hours per day 7 days a week.
Monitoring Stations observe traffic near the inspection station.
WIMweights are recorded/displayed when vehicle is on static scale.
Can remotely view video images of any driver documentation presented at the Inspection Station/Kiosk.
The operator can select direct vehicle/driver using messages on signs at the inspection station.
The operator can select which highways are monitored and are signaling vehicles to report to the inspection station.
