"Dan has a wealth of experience with highway safety issues, and we are happy that he is part of the ATA team."
"I've spent my professional career working in commercial vehicle and highway safety, so I'm excited to bring that experience to ATA to help this industry and our members improve upon trucking's already impressive safety record," Horvath said.
