Made in the USA
The GiraffeG4 System is a safety product for tractor-trailers and recreational vehicles that measures and prevents collisions with low-clearance obstacles. Originally manufactured in China, the GiraffeG4 System is now manufactured exclusively in the United States. Improvements also have been made to the sensor for additional speed and range. The system is a two-part measuring device consisting of an exterior weather and waterproof sensor, and a display unit inside the cab with the driver. It uses sound waves to measure potential low-clearance obstacles, such as bridges, trestles and awnings, warning the driver if there is not enough clearance for the vehicle to safely pass under.

Avoid violations with trailer plate service from Bestpass
Bestpass, a company offering single-source payment and streamlined commercial toll management services, now helps drivers and fleets avoid costly and time-consuming violations by tracking trailer license plates. Many tolling authorities will take a picture of a trailer’s license plate as a backup in case they don’t read the tractor’s toll transponder or the toll is otherwise unassigned. Bestpass customers are able to upload and maintain a list of all of their trailer plates, which allows the tolling authority to match the toll to the right vehicle, eliminating delay in the toll posting and any associated administrative fees. To learn more and to sign up, visit Bestpass.com or call 518-458-1579.
