Towing Industry Applauds Introduction of DRIVE ACT

U.S. Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) recently introduced the “Deregulating Restrictions on Interstate Vehicles and Eighteen-Wheelers (DRIVE) Act” (S.2671). If passed, the bill would prohibit the FMCSA from implementing any rule or regulation mandating large commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) engaged in interstate commerce be equipped with a speed limiting device set to a maximum speed. TRAA is proud to have supported this legislation through our many meetings with Senator Daines' office and honored to be specifically acknowledged in the Senator's press release.


TRAA has actively opposed FMCSA's proposals to require speed limiting devices based on our belief that CMV speed limiters would adversely affect roadway safety for motorists and traffic incident management responders.


?TRAA has advocated directly with Members of Congress on this issue, including Senator Daines, and participate in an anti-speed limited coalition with OOIDA and other stakeholders. We are currently working to help secure co-sponsors for the bill.
