Another Kind of Stop at Rest Stops

Posted 7 years ago

Truck drivers may soon become involved in a new initiative to stop one kind of trafficking - prostitution.  Between 2004 and 2009, the FBI set up a series of countrywide stings at truck stops where they found an alarming number of pimps deploying their young prostitutes, MyNews 3 reports.  It is a $32 billion industry and a trend that Truckers Against Trafficking hopes to combat.

The program educates truck drivers on how to identify a prostitute and encourages them to contact the National Human Trafficking Hotline when they do identify one. Several states like Nevada support the program.  An estimated 400 children are trafficked each night in Nevada and Assembly man John Hambrick hopes that the new campaign will help stop this crime.
