It came in my newsletter. Michigan is thinking about it, as well. The old timers won't have to worry about it, but those just starting out, be aware of additional training.

Capt. Mike Crispen of the Licensing and Commercial Standards of the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) wants to maximize what he believes is a key component in the fight against human trafficking.

I tried to find it on another website, but couldn't. I see this happening all across the U.S.

Some of you haven't caught on. The deal with human trafficking and truckers is not that you would drive across state lines with a "kidnapee" on board. It's that truckers stop at travel centers a lot. At a truck stop you may run into at least two situations. First a lot lizard that is actually a kidnapped girl who is forced to solicit. The other is you walk across the parking lot and into the building. You see (usually) a girl in a car who is alone, looks lost and maybe a bit frightened. That's because her kidnapper had to stop for the usual reasons, and the kidnapee has been left alone for a moment.

If you are at a truck stop, have your eyes open and understand what's going on, you may be able to help.

Truckers Against Trafficking

Modern-day slavery, when it results in people being bought and sold for forced labor or commercial sex, is called human trafficking. This video talks about how you can help.

Secure the borders and this wouldn't be a problem.

It's not just foreigners being trafficked.

Believe it or NOT, it is very important to recognize human trafficking. At the very least, you should NOT support it. You could go to jail, and the cops will seize your company truck. That could result in your employment being terminated.

As well as losing ones job, a driver could face criminal charges as well.

That goes without saying. There was an (either ABC or NBC) news program on it, where the truck driver was arrested for soliciting a prostitute, and they seized the truck. The police called the trucking company to see if they wanted to post bail, FOR THE TRUCK.

You might be able to find it on YouTube.

This is excellent. I think that since many traffickers target truck stops for potential clients this is a really great way to cut off avenues of their income.
