LAS VEGAS - American Trucking Associations announced this week that it has joined together with Truckers Against Trafficking to raise awareness about human trafficking among professional truck drivers and the trucking industry and educate them on how they can help fight against the crime.
"There are over 3.1 million truck drivers who travel over 408 billion miles each year," said ATA Chairman Dan England, chairman of C.R. England Inc., Salt Lake City. "We are asking our motor carriers to include this important information in their training programs and to work with their customers and communities to help combat the problem. These professionals are the eyes and ears of the nation's highways, and with knowledge and guidance, they can make a big difference and save lives."
