Mr. Wagner's Milestone

Mr. Wagner's Milestone

Copyright 2002, Traffic World Magazine

What a pleasant surprise to find, among the "gloom and doom" stories, the account of truck driver George Wagner, who has completed over 50 years of safe driving ("Patience for 50 Years," Sept. 2). Being a former private fleet executive, I am acutely aware of what a milestone this is.

Although the "bad apples" get the press, there are a legion of drivers out there such as Mr. Wagner who do their job in a quiet, professional manner, who are a true credit to the world's biggest and best motor carrier industry.

Congratulations to Mr. Wagner and all the other dedicated and safety-minded professional drivers.
