APTRA opened the 2016 Legislative Session with a presentation to the Joint Senate and House Transportation Committee with the following video that was created by APTRA. Troy Barnett, Nick Simonetta, and Eric Emmert addressed the committee explaining the importance of safety in the towing community and how great of an economic impact the Arizona towing industry has on the state. APTRA also stressed the critical relationships we build between DPS, ADOT, local law enforcement agencies and the motoring public.
