Skip to comments.Another sign of integrated North America
Posted on 05/15/2009 3:04:37 AM PDT by Man50D
Signs showing an integrated North America have begun showing up on U.S. Interstate highways for NORPASS, a new electronic system that allows participating truckers in Canada and the U.S. to by-pass roadside weigh stations through the use of a transponder mounted on the windshield.
The NORPASS website describes the organization as "a partnership of state and provincial agencies and trucking industry representatives who are committed to promoting safe and efficient trucking throughout North America.
Truckers that register to participate in NORPASS receive a small transponder that signals to a computer in participating weigh stations.
As the participating truck approaches the NORPASS weigh station, a roadside reader detects the transponder and a computer in the weigh station checks the truck's credentials.
If the truck is certified, the NORPASS transponder signals a green light, allowing the driver to bypass the station.
If a problem is detected, a red light flashing on the transponder indicates a need for the truck to stop and be checked.
Participating NORPASS truckers are charged $45 to purchase a windshield transponder directly from NORPASS.
Melanie Coon, a spokesperson for the Washington Department of Transportation, or WaDOT, told WND the purpose of the system is to contribute to the state's efforts to introduce "automated intelligence systems to assist trucks and people in crossing the U.S.-Canadian border more efficiently."

I suspect if it only costs $45 for a legitimate one, then an illegitimate one that says whatever the trucker wants it to say will only be about $100.
Same as EasyPass IMO ... and VERY welcome news to truckers.
I am sure it will be welcome to truckers. From looking at some of the websites associated with the project (http://www.norpass.net/, http://www.bestpass.com/home/), it appears to be of the same stripe as other vehicle identification systems.
My point was a technical one, not a convenience one: the information that the transponder sends is not particularly trustworthy, not that it isn't convenient.
We are being integrated so that the UN vehicles can have free range.
This sounds like another part of the plan that goes along with the fenced fields, the stockpiles of “coffins” in the SE United States, the stockpiles of white vehicles and other individual reports made here in the forum the last couple of years.
Gee: and I always thought they weighed those trucks.
Pay $45,00 and you can weigh anything you like?
Given this, I wonder if the US is going ahead with plans to put radiation scanners at weigh stations?
Seems like a waste now, if hacking a $45 transponder gets your truck past the scanners.
There were also plans to put AS&E backscatter imagers there to see inside trucks, to find contraband.
This is nothing new. Let’s use the example of a truck traveling from Tampa to Atlanta on I-75. The truck must go through an initial weigh station. After leaving that station, if it gets to the next weigh station within a certain time window, then it may by-pass the station. The reason is that the truck did not stop long enough to change loads or pick up an additional load- there’s no reason for it to stop at the station. This decreases driving time and reduces traffic at weigh stations. When the truck crosses the state line, it may continue in this manner because Florida and Georgia have by-pass systems that communicate with each other. It’s only logical to include provinces in this system (escpecially British Columbia because of the Port of Vancouver).
This isn’t a “merge the US, Mexico and Canada” conspiracy, it’s just practical use of technology to improve transportation.
Have you been watching the Chrylser-Fiat corruption take place? It has relevance to the NAU.
Apparently government ‘bailouts’ and forced takeover by the federal government is another way to integrate canada and the US that isn’t as blatant as the other proposals.
It works like this:
1. An American manufacturing firm gets into financial difficulties due to a ethically compromised leadership.
2. They file for bankruptcy protect. Meanwhile the globalist are slavering to get their hands on this American manufacturer.
3. The globalist president ‘bails’ them out, e.g. bribes the company to go bankrupt and give up their US holdings to the fedgov.
4.The Fedgov takes the company and pretends to sell off the assest to a foreign car company. What really happens is the whitehouse literally gives 20% to Fiat. No Fiat isn’t paying a penny for it. They give 68% to the union thank you very much for the vote fraud in the last election, and they split the last 12% between the white house and Canada.
Now if you were going to integrate two countries, and your citizens were categorically opposed, why not create an unconstitutional illegal “business partnership” with a foreign government? do this with a few more companies and you’ll never split the two governments apart.
Instant NAU wihtouth the hassle of telling anyone about it.
Oh and by the way, fiat gets to make their tiny unreliable automobiles that failed in the free marketplace here, without investing a single dime in the business.Who is in the fiat consortium? I am sure there is more corruption if you look under the rock.
