Troopers with special truck and FHP Camaro at the Capitol

The Florida Trucking Association recently held its annual "Truckers Day at the Capitol" in order to make Legislators and citizens aware of the dangers of driving in truckers' blind spots. A special "No-Zone" truck was parked in the Capitol Courtyard, and a marked Florida Highway Patrol Camaro was parked behind it. Legislators and visitors to the Capitol were invited into the driver's seat of the 18-wheeler so they could see for themselves how limited a truck driver's view is when using the mirrors to look behind the truck.

Shown, from left to right, are Chief Silvester Dawson, Lt. Colonel Larry Austin, Colonel Chris Knight, and Chief Rick Gregory.
