Earlier this month there were two accidents on I-75 involving semi-trucks, where two people died.
Wednesday and Thursday, Troopers will be out on the roads watching for unsafe drivers, especially those who could cause accidents between passenger vehicles and large trucks.
Troopers say truck drivers need to make sure they have enough rest, keep a proper distance, and be alert for other drivers who may not be driving safely.
"Message to the drivers is you have to respect the size of the big truck because they are carrying a heavy load and it takes longer for these guys to stop," says Lt. Mike Burroughs with Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers also want remind drivers that if they do see an emergency vehicles or patrol car on the side of the road, they do need to move over so they can do their job safety.
