"Keep on Truckin'"
#1
Truckers, bus drivers recruited to hunt for terrorists
Time |
"The Department of Homeland Security this year gave $19.3 million to the American Trucking Associations, which is based in Alexandria, Va., to recruit a volunteer 'army' called Highway Watch. So far, 10,000 truckers have signed on to become amateur sleuths. Over the next year, the goal is to add tollbooth workers, rest-stop employees and construction crews, creating a corps of 400,000 people drawn from every state... Members of Highway Watch are given a secret toll-free number to report any suspicious behavior - people taking pictures of bridges, for example, or passengers handling heavy backpacks with unusual care... The Highway Watch website boasts that the program is open to 'an elite core [sic] of truck drivers.'"
