Overview & ATA's Position

American Trucking Associations, Inc. (ATA) is vitally interested and involved in promoting both the safety of the trucking industry and our industry’s workplace - the nation’s highway system. ATA recognizes that laws and regulations relating to commercial motor vehicle safety are essential, but knows they must also be practical. They should benefit the public, motor carriers and their employees while imposing a minimal burden on commerce. They should promote uniformity of state and federal requirements. Finally, such requirements should be imposed equally on all types of carriers engaged in both interstate and intrastate commerce.
