Oregon "Truck Green Light Program"

If you're a trucker in Oregon and looking for ways to save money on fuel the State of Oregon has a "Green Light" program that can help you.   The Oregon Green Light program started in 1999 and continues to date.  The program enable truckers, who meet certain requirements, to bypass the weigh stations and thus save fuel cost incurred while navigating through weigh stations.

According to the Oregon Department of Transportation operating a heavy truck is estimated to cost $1.96 per minute and stopping at a weigh station can take five minutes. As of March 12, the Green Light program had weighed in-motion and precleared trucks 15,106,226 times in the past 14 years. On that basis, truckers have so far saved 1.2 million hours of travel time and $148 million in operating costs as they rolled on past weigh stations
A motor carrier's truck qualifies for a Green Light transponder if it has permanent Oregon registration credentials, it has three axles or more in combination with a minimum registered GVW of 34,001 pounds, it visits Green Light sites an average of at least once per month, and the carrier does not have an unsatisfactory safety fitness rating. 
The majority of the trucking community in this country is made up of small businesses, as 93 percent of all carriers have 20 or fewer trucks in their fleet and 78 percent of carriers have fleets of just six or fewer trucks.
