    On behalf of the Towing & Recovery Association of Ohio (TRAO) , the Towing & Recovery Association of Kentucky and the West Virginia Towing & Recovery Association , we appreciate the support of our members, volunteers, show sponsors, exhibitors and attendees in making the Midwest Regional Tow Show the largest tow show in the Midwest.

    This event, referred to as the Family Towing Affair, is planned with attendees in mind — including families. Children are entertained on Friday and Saturday evenings, allowing parents to attend show events. The Women of TRAO hosts a luncheon featuring a “Safety Fashion Show” with new apparel from AW Direct. Male “models” are chosen from within our industry and represent towers, industry leaders and exhibitors who are willing to strut the runway while showcasing their unique personalities and attitudes.

    • 2019 National #MoveOver Day
    • Saturday, October 19, 2019
    • 3 locations:
      • Los Angeles
      • San Francisco
      • Cloverdale


      • On Saturday, October 19th, 2019 tow operators, CalTrans, local PD, CHP, and EMS will gather across California for National #MoveOver Day! Spearheaded three years ago by the Arizona Professional Towing & Recovery Association, this event is meant to raise awareness of each state’s Move Over Laws. In California, the move over law is not well known, so we will take to our roadways and let people know about it. In 2018, over 75 trucks and service vehicles rode around the San Francisco Bay, with lights running and with banners & signs on flatbeds. This year, we are expanding our efforts to Southern California, the Bay Area, and Cloverdale. Help us make 2019 the year that California sat up and listened to tow operators! Each location will have special events planned, with a procession of tow trucks/emergency responders, food, and fun! If you can participate, please CLICK HERE to let us know!
