Today, American Trucking Associations Vice President of Safety Policy Dan Horvath was named to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee.

“The MCSAC has played a critical role in shaping FMCSA’s efforts to improve highway safety,” Horvath said. “I’m honored to be named to this committee and look forward to continuing its important work.”

Originally chartered in 2006, the 17 members of the committee represent industry stakeholders, law enforcement, labor and advocacy groups and provide advice and recommendations to the Administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on motor carrier safety programs and motor carrier safety regulations.

“Dan is not just an expert on trucking and highway safety, he is a passionate advocate for the industry and our mission to reduce highway fatalities,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “FMCSA and the MCSAC – and by extension the driving public – will benefit greatly from his expertise.”
