While human trafficking takes place in many forms and places, our roadways and related infrastructure serve as a prime breeding ground for trafficking to invade our society. Florida’s nearly half a million Commercial Driver License (CDL) holders play a pivotal role in our fight against this horrendous crime, serving as the eyes and ears of our highways.
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has teamed up with Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody to enlist Florida’s CDL holders in our fight to end human trafficking in Florida by becoming a Highway Hero.
As part of the Highway Heroes initiative, more than 500,000 letters were sent to CDL holders across Florida with information on how to become certified in spotting and reporting trafficking. To view the letter, please click here.
As a CDL holder, you are in a unique position to make a difference and close loopholes to traffickers who seek to exploit our transportation system for their personal gain.Become a Highway Hero Now
