TRAA News Update

There’s always a lot happening at the Towing and Recovery Association of America, Inc.® (TRAA) and this summer has been no different. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, TRAA is still hard at work protecting and improving the towing and recovery industry. We’ve been keeping our members updated with resources throughout the pandemic while still focusing our legislative efforts on the 2020 INVEST in America Act, the Protecting Roadside First Responders Act, and laying the groundwork for a federal Move Over Law.

Additionally, one of TRAA’s key focuses is bringing new people into the industry. In June TRAA launched its newest book, How to Become a Tow Truck Operator which is now available for e-reader and paperback on Amazon. This is a short, no-nonsense guide to a career as an operator in the towing and recovery industry. The book provides an overview of the work towers do, a tow truck driver job description, a look at tow truck driver requirements, information on tow truck driver income and salary, tips on finding a job in the towing industry and more. How to Become a Tow Truck Operator is a must-read for anyone considering a career in towing and recovery!

If you want to get involved in TRAA’s federal legislative efforts, registration is now open for TRAA’s 3rd annual Legislative Action Workshop set for March 9-11, 2021. This event is the towing and recovery industry’s only national “hill day”. Each year TRAA members unite to focus on particular topics that align with our collective legislative agenda. The legislation addressed during this year’s event included a federal Move Over Law, supporting the Drive SAFE Act, and critical weights and measures changes. During the event, we were able to secure co-signers and essential support for bills that will help all towers be safer and operate more efficiently. This is your opportunity to meet with members of Congress and make real, substantial change for the whole community.
