The law requires signs that bring attention to human trafficking to be posted in public areas near highway rest stops, weigh stations, airports and even strip clubs.
Experts say those are the areas where human smugglers are most likely to take their victims. Our cameras spotted the signs already posted at the rest stop near Daniels Parkway and I-75.
"If we can help one person, if we can intervene and get them safe and get them on the right track -- then we've made a difference," said Hillary Lemaster, director of Wings of Shelter.
While most say the signs are a step in the right direction, others think they are a little lacking.
"If you hadn't pointed it out to me, I never would have even looked at it," said driver Sydelle Weinberger.
"There's a lot of other things to read here. For example, no loitering," said driver Wendy Husser.
The state Department of Transportation has also installed the signs at rest stops in Collier and Sarasota Counties as well. They are also at truck weigh stations in Charlotte County.
DOT officials say the cost of the signs is included in their annual maintenance budget. However, it's up to private businesses to install the signs on their own.
