Your Roads. Their Freedom.
Every year, millions of men, women, and children are held against their will and trafficked into forced labor and commercial sex. While on your roads, you could be the key to their freedom.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) "Your Roads, Their Freedom" campaign seeks to raise awareness of human trafficking in the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) industry. This effort aims to educate and empower CMV drivers and other transportation-industry employees to recognize the signs of human trafficking and report the crime to authorities.
Since human trafficking poses a threat to transportation safety, FMCSA seeks to educate CMV drivers and other travel-related employees in protecting the nation’s roadways and transportation networks against criminals perpetrating this heinous crime.
