The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles’ mission is to ensure a safe highway driving environment for every Florida motorist. FHP troopers are crucial in successfully accomplishing this task. Some of a trooper’s duties range from assisting stranded motorists, apprehending the impaired driver, interdicting the flow of contraband, providing car seats to needy families, and issuing citations for traffic violations. Only the combined dedication and desire of all of the Department’s members will make Florida’s highways a safer reality.
