At the same time, Mr. Olsson will join MAP’s technical committee and will be a member of its tires/wheels/TPMS sub-committee, helping to represent the industry regarding all proposed and pending state and federal regulations, as well as helping to improve industry service and operations standards.

I’d like to but I am too busy
