The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles along with Attorney General Ashley Moody has teamed up to enlist Florida’s CDL holders in a fight to end human trafficking by asking drivers to become Highway Hero’s.
According to FDHSMV, 4,000 plus truckers have signed up to become one. The truck drivers are trained to combat human trafficking.
