"Safe drivers and strong companies are too often exposed to legal vulnerabilities in our industry," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "ATA is beyond thankful that companies like Drivers Legal Plan exist and are willing to fight on behalf of the trucking industry and its people."
Drivers Legal Plan's legal representation is dedicated to the defense of a driver's record and a motor carrier's safety profile and rating.

Maintaining a one-of-a-kind database of cases involving moving or non-moving violations, citations and accidents, Drivers Legal Plan is one of the largest filers of DataQ challenges in the country.
"The uncertainty surrounding CSA and increased roadside enforcement initiatives across the U.S. have made actively and promptly addressing violation issues more critical for drivers and trucking companies," said Brad Klepper, executive vice president and general counsel at Drivers Legal Plan. "While we fully support efforts to improve highway safety, it is essential that drivers receive fair and uniform treatment in all jurisdictions. Drivers Legal Plan has backed the trucking industry's involvement in safety for 25 years and we are proud to continue our support through our ongoing participation in the ATA Featured Product program."
