The Towing and Recovery Association of America, Inc.® (TRAA) has joined the Statewide Towing Association, Inc. of Massachusetts, and several Massachusetts towing companies, in filing a request in Federal District Court seeking preliminary injunctive relief regarding the Massachusetts State Police (“MSP”) Request For Response #SP20-TOW-X81 (“RFR”). The MSP RFR is a bid request for companies to provide towing, recovery, and roadside services for the MSP relating to law enforcement actions, accidents, roadway clearance, and disabled motorist services and would replace the current Tow Service Agreement (“TSA”).

The RFR includes several areas of concern from tower safety, tow company appeal rights, onerous equipment requirements, and contradictory educational requirements for tow operators. TRAA has signed on as a party to protect not only our own interests with the National Driver Certification Program® but also our many member towing companies and certified towing professionals within the state.
