Iowa 80 Truckstop has joined forces with Truckers Against Trafficking to raise awareness about human trafficking among professional drivers and expand its employee training program with regard to this issue.
Professional drivers are encouraged to pick up a TAT wallet card at Iowa 80 Truckstop, which provides red flags to look for if trafficking is suspected, specific information to note for law enforcement and the national hotline number to call with any tips.
Iowa 80 Truckstop also now includes general training about human trafficking and TAT resource materials to all company employees.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
