TRAA ELD Exemption Petition - Comment Period is Open!

On December 13, 2017, the Towing and Recovery Association of America, Inc.® (TRAA) submitted a petition to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) for an exemption from electronic logging device (ELD) requirements for the towing industry.

Together the TRAA Cabinet and the TRAA Legislative Advocacy Network® (TRAA LAN™) have worked diligently on behalf of the towing industry to present a compelling argument for a much-needed exemption. The petition was posted to the Federal Register on January 10, 2019 ( ).

We need the towing industry to submit positive, factual, and informational comments in favor of our request. It is vital that the comments are well thought out and supportive of our argument.

Therefore, we are asking each State Towing Association to reach out to their members and ask them to comment in support of this petition. In addition, if your association has a relationship with any other organization that might be in support of our exemption request, please ask them to submit positive comments as well. The comment period ends on February 9, 2018.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the TRAA Office at or TRAA Legislative and TRAA LAN™ Chair, Joanne Blyton at .
