Scott Darling – Prior FMCSA Administrator

While the vast displays are both spectacular and interesting, I most value the opportunity to interact with the participants at the show. To have such a broad spectrum of the trucking industry represented at this event is a unique chance to learn what is on people’s minds, and most importantly to me, lay the groundwork for building and strengthening FMCSA’s safety partnerships. MATS provides a forum for dialogue with our stakeholders, to listen and understand concerns and, in the end, leave with valuable new insights and perspectives that will serve our partnership for roadway safety for every driver and for every traveler.
