Hi and thank you for using JustAnswer!

It means that truckers need to apply their brakes to make sure that they work in the event that they need to make a quick stop given the safety issues in that area of the bridge (particularly if there's a steep hill or if is more dangerous because of rain, ice, or fog).

As you know, trucks take a longer time to come to a complete stop. It's a reminder to ensure safety.
