Miller Industries Announces Successful 
Federal Heavy-Duty Towing Legislation

CHATTANOOGA, TN/ DECEMBER 7, 2015  – Towing companies with heavy-duty tow trucks now have some federal protection as they handle heavy-duty tows and recoveries on interstate highways, thanks to Miller Industries and U.S. Reps. Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN) and Robert Brady (D-PA).

The Fair Tow provision of the federal Highway Bill, which was signed into law Friday December 4, exempts heavy-duty tow trucks from weight limitations while recovering and transporting disabled trucks on federal highways. The provision will enable tow truck operators to clear federal interstates as quickly as possible and tow disabled heavy-duty vehicles to the nearest appropriate repair facility without the fear of weight fines.

 “Some of our customers were being unfairly fined while providing a very necessary service for the trucking industry and motoring public,” said Miller Industries’ Co-CEO and President Will Miller II.

 “Miller Industries brought this to the attention of our local U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, and together we worked to right this wrong and help all heavy-duty tow operators within the 48 contiguous states perform their jobs more easily,” Miller added.

Miller Industries’ aim was to remove a financial challenge and safety concern about potential weight issues and scaling impacting towing operators who work roadside.

“Miller Industries’ wants towing operators to return home safely at the end of every day,” Will Miller II said.

We thank co-sponsors Reps. Fleischmann and Brady for their efforts on this important legislation to our industry.
