It is with sadness that AMTA has learned of the passing of Mayne Root.  Mayne has long been considered an iconic influence within the transportation safety/enforcement industry.  Those of you who have known him personally can attest to his stalwart leadership in serving as AMTA’s Executive Director between 2003 and 2010 after an extensive career with the Calgary Police Service for 30 years.

Mayne is remembered by his wife, Rose Lynn Root (nee Pierson), four adult children and numerous grandchildren.

Mayne will be greatly missed.

On behalf of AMTA’s Board of Directors, staff, membership, and stakeholders, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Mayne’s family, friends, and loved ones during this time of grief.
