NORPASS is not a data collection system. The NORPASS partners are committed to promoting safe and efficient trucking though out North America. Through the combination of mainline screening devices and compatible transponders, participating safe and legal commercial vehicles are allowed to bypass specific weigh stations allowing enforcement to concentrate its efforts on high-risk carriers.
Participation in NORPASS is voluntary. The only cost to the carrier is the charge for the transponder. There are no monthly or annual fees
