DriveBC’s CV Route Planner Assists Commercial Vehicles with Faster and Safer Routes
The new DriveBC route planner is a free online tool that provides commercial vehicles a safer and more efficient way to travel. The route planner provides commercial vehicles with the shortest route while identifying potential clearance restrictions based on information about the size of the vehicle provided by the user.
Along with identifying clearance restrictions, the CV route planner also assists with applications for oversize/overweight single trip permits. Professional truck drivers and motor carriers can also check highway conditions as DriveBC has placed close to 400 highway webcams at key locations around the province.
"BC Trucking Association members that transport oversized loads welcome and appreciate this new planning tool. They've been involved in testing and have had the opportunity to provide feedback to improve the tool before it was made public. Up-to-date information on overhead clearances is absolutely critical not only for the safety of commercial vehicle operators, but for those they share the road with,” said Louise Yako, BC Trucking Association’s President & CEO.
Another tool that is saving commercial vehicles travel time is Weigh2GoBC, which allows registered vehicles to avoid inspection sites by being electronically weighed and measured.
Check out the CV route planner to plan your safe and efficient trip.
